‘We can’t find our cat, Emilio. If anyone sees him, please help him get home. We are all so upset. He’s microchipped but no collar,’ she wrote, sharing a photo of the cat with infant daughter Maria Lucia.
‘The local police know, so if you find him, please contact them.’
She did not give any details of the general location where the cat could be or how it managed to get away.
Exclusive DailyMail.com photos show a disheveled and distressed-looking Baldwin setting off into the woods with what appeared to be a yellow squeak toy, in hopes of luring Emilio.
He wore a black t-shirt, black pants, and dress shoes, with his hair unkempt, as he wandered around the area in search for the kitty.
The family pet is believed to be a Bengal cat, which are known for the leopard-like spots on their coat and highly-energetic temperaments.
‘We are all so upset’: Hilaria, 37, took to her Instagram to post a snap of their beloved pet named Emilio with infant daughter Maria Lucia in hopes of tracking down the feline
In April, Hilaria announced that the couple got Emilio for their daughter Carmen, eight, who ‘desperately’ wanted a cat since she was two, however, Alec is allergic.
‘We struggled with what to do for years, lots of research, lots of searching…and now we have her baby. Meet Carmen’s Emilio Cookie Baldwin (yes, she named him), ‘ Hilaria wrote in an Instagram post at the time.
Bengal cats are hypoallergenic and are some of the most expensive breeds, ranging between $1,500 and $3,000.
It is unknown when exactly the cat took off and why they have not been able to locate him through his microchip.
The family’s missing pet comes amid a wave of controversy surrounding the Baldwins, following the tragic death of Alec’s colleague, cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, whom he accidentally fatally shot on the set of upcoming film Rust.
The family has been riding out the storm in Vermont where they have retreated last week. Just a day earlier, Alec and Hilaria were spotted leaving their hideaway as they stepped out for coffee.
Hilaria went for a three-mile run while Alec, dressed in all black, waited for her in their in their car. The couple then went on a coffee run in Manchester Center.
They hit four different coffee shops before settling on Starbucks where Hilaria, wearing a baseball cap and activewear, emerged carrying several coffees.
They later were seen shopping at high-end textile store Pendleton.
This comes the day after Hilaria was hit with criticism for posting what critics called ‘tasteless’ and ‘inappropriate’ Halloween photos of their family as husband Alec deals with the aftermath of the shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchens.
‘Parenting through this has been an intense experience, to say the least,’ Hilaria, 37, wrote on Instagram Sunday.

‘Today, we rallied to give them a holiday. Last min costumes…a little hodge-podge…but they were so happy and that warmed my mama heart.’
The Baldwins have been under intense scrutiny ever since Alec, 63, fired the gun that killed Hutchins on the set of his movie ‘Rust’ on October 21.
She was criticized for posting cheerful holiday snaps while Hutchins’ nine-year-old son would face his first Halloween without his mother.
On Sunday, the haunting final words of Hutchins as she laid dying on a Santa Fe film set were revealed.
‘That was no good. That was no good at all,’ the 42-year-old mother-of-two said seconds after she was fatally shot by Alec.
The crew on the movie set were already concerned about gun safety before he accidentally shot and killed her.
A warrant indicated that a single bullet struck Hutchins in the chest, and then struck director Joel Souza in the shoulder as he was standing behind her, injuring him.

Unionized workers had walked off the set hours before the fatal shooting, after they complained about long hours, shoddy conditions and another safety incident days earlier involving ‘two misfires’ of a prop weapon.
Alec has since told reporters he doesn’t think production will resume.
Meanwhile Hilaria is also being branded a desperate attention-seeker after interrupting her husband’s impromptu press conference about the death, prompting Alec to glare and snap at her.
She later shared a heartfelt post on Instagram: ‘I love you and I’m here,’ she captioned a picture of her and her husband’s intertwined hands. Her apparent attempt at eliciting sympathy backfired online, with numerous social media users calling Hilaria out for her attention-seeking way.

Her caption described how ‘intense’ parenting her children has been while coping with the tragedy, writing: ‘Parenting through this has been an intense experience, to say the least. Today, we rallied to give them a holiday’
‘This scene with Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Baldwin (aka 100% not-Spanish Hillary from Boston who is still using a fake accent) is nuts,’ tweeted @blanket1734.
‘He’s trying to deal with the paps and his wife keeps jumping in, trying to butt in and FILMING because she’s that desperate for attention.’
Alec told the reporters he had dinner with ‘my friend’ Halyna on the first day of filming Rust in New Mexico before the shooting.
‘What do you want to know?’ a visibly agitated Alec said as his wife, Hilaria, held up her cell phone while apparently recording the impromptu news briefing.
The shooting remains under investigation.
