Authorities are asking for the public’s help in locating a Kentucky mother-of-four who has been missing for nearly a month.
Savannah Spurlock, 22, was last seen leaving a bar in Lexington on Friday, January 4, with three men, according to a Facebook post from the Richmond Police Department. She hasn’t been seen since.
Savannah’s mother, Ellen, told NBC’s “Dateline” that her daughter rarely goes out and would never leave her four sons willingly. Savannah has a 4-year-old, a 2-year-old, and infant twins who were born in December. Her three youngest boys are currently living with their father while Savannah’s eldest son, who has a different dad, is being cared for by her father, according to NBC.
Ellen Spurlock said her daughter took her car that night to go out with two friends.
“That was the first time, that I knew of, that she had been out in months,” Ellen told NBC. “She told me she was going out for a little bit and she would be back. She didn’t give me the hour, but I took it to mean she would be gone for the evening.”
Lt. Col. Rodney Richardson, assistant chief of police at the Richmond Police Department, said investigators learned that Savannah drove with a friend to another friend’s house. They then got in another car to drive to The Other Bar in Lexington.
Around 3 a.m. Friday, Ellen said she got a FaceTime call from her daughter, who was driving in a car full of people.
“I got the call and she said she was in Lexington and that everything was fine,” Ellen said.
Ellen said a man was driving the car, but she didn’t recognise him. There were also one to two people in the back seat “hollering and talking over each other,” but she told NBC she couldn’t see them clearly. She said her daughter did not seem upset.
“She said: ‘I will be home later this morning. I promise.’ And when she said she promised something, she always did it,” Ellen told “Dateline”. “So when I went to sleep, I was secure in the thought that she would be home later in the morning.”
But when Ellen woke up in the morning, her daughter had not returned. When she didn’t return by evening, Ellen reported her missing to police.
Richardson said Savannah was last seen on surveillance footage leaving The Other Bar with three men. Police said all three men have been identified and interviewed, though no arrests have been made. Police have not released their names.
Richardson said investigators determined that Savannah did not know the men, but that they did know each other. They also believe that two of the men were in the car when Savannah called her mum, and that the third was following that group in another car.
One of Savannah’s aunts, Elaine Moore, told the Lexington Herald Leader that police told the family that the men claimed Savannah left one of their homes on foot.
According to WLEX, police obtained a search warrant to look through the Garrard County home belonging to the parents of one of the men on January 22, and seized a car off the property. No further details were released.
Savannah’s family and police are asking the public to contact them if they have any information on her disappearance, no matter how small a tip.
Anyone with information about her disappearance is being asked to contact the Richmond Police Department at 859-624-4776 or email [email protected]
Savannah is described as five feet tall, 140 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She has multiple tattoos including a rose on the left shoulder, the phrase, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” on her right torso, and “I’m her daughter” on her back. She was last seen wearing a black top, a maroon skirt, and heels.
