GARRARD COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – Friends and family of a Richmond woman who disappeared 9 days ago continue to plead for answers.

On Sunday people gathered for a search party, hoping to find 22-year-old Savannah Spurlock.

Spurlock was seen leaving “The Other Bar” in Lexington on January 4th.

She’s seen in surveillance images leaving the bar with two men. Spurlock’s mother says she Facetimed her later in the night with several people.

Investigators have now questioned three men in connection to the case. Police say the men deny knowing where Spurlock went or what happened to her.

On Sunday the search for answers took community members to Garrard and Lincoln Counties, despite the rain and cold weather.

Friends of the 22-year-old say anonymous tips led them to Cedar Creek Lake and parts of Garrard County.

“We really just want to bring her home regardless of the outcome. We just pray that God is with us today and guides us to her,” said friend Megan King.

Many of Spurlock’s friends say her disappearance is still surreal.

“It’s literally been like a nightmare for the last nine days that we’ve been looking for her,” said friend Kala Hamblin.

The crew searched in and out of wooded areas for hours – but still no sign of Savannah.

Megan, Kala, and all of Savannah’s friends and family are holding onto hope; hope that the mother of 4 will come home.

“I do know that if she is still out there and still fighting, she’s fighting for her babies,” said Megan.

Anyone with information about Savannah Spurlock’s whereabouts is asked to call the Richmond Police Department.
