Haiti native Jimmy Jean-Louis of the TV show "Heroes" lost relatives in Tuesday's 7.0 earthquake and is still trying to locate his parents in the earthquake-ravaged country.
CNN reports that Jean-Louis is seeking his parents after he found out that a home he grew up in had collapsed and killed several family members.
He told CNN, "I have not slept yet. The second house that I grew up in was down, and some relatives have died, from what I have been told." He goes on to say, "I haven't been able to reach my parents. I have heard that they are OK, but I do not know what is going on around them."

Jean-Louis spent the recent holidays in Haiti with his family, and plans to go back soon to administer aid through his organization Hollywood Unites for Haiti, according to the cable outlet. "I am going to try to get in, but I am going to try to understand the situation first to see how I can best help," Jean-Louis told CNN. "The plan is to at some point visit, and right now, I am trying to be as productive as I can be here."
Hollywood Unites for Haiti is collecting donations on their web site at hufh.org.
In another way to help, fellow Haiti native Wyclef Jean announced Tuesday that those who wish to aid earthquake victims can donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund by texting "Yele" to 501501 (the amount will be charged to the person's cell phone bill) or visit www.Yele.org and click "Donate."
