A supermodel is desperate for help after her pooch vanished.

Adriana Lima's Maltese pooch, Ivy, who she's had for eight years, disappeared Tuesday and has not been seen since.

Lima is a well-known super model representing several noteworthy brands, including Victoria's Secret. She is also a resident of Miami and is asking her neighbors for help. "Please, if anybody finds her, please, give us a call," Lima said via phone, "because she means so much to me and my family."

Lima left for New York to give birth to her second child. She left the 2-and-a-half-pound Ivy in the care of some friends. Somehow the dog slipped out of a door of that family's home. They said they spent all day looking for her. "Yesterday, today," said a man. "Today we went to the pound to see if maybe they had found her."

Lima said, on Tuesday, Ivy somehow ran off through an open door and has not been seen since.

Lima is married to former NBA player Marko Jaric. They have a daughter together who has been left absolutely devastated by the dog's disappearance. "I feel really like I lost a child," Lima said. "It's a really hard time for all of us. You know, she's been with us for so many years."

If you have any information on where this dog may be, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
