MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – Saturday marks 100 days since Madison County mother Savannah Spurlock vanished.

Her family is left clinging to memories, and slivers of hope that she will one day come home.

Savannah’s father opened up publicly in an emotional letter posted on Facebook.

“The 100 days since Savannah’s disappearance has been filled sleepless nights, tearful days, and more anxiety than any parent could imagine they could cope with,” Cecil Spurlock says as he reads the letter out loud in a Facebook video.

The letter describing the agony for Savannah’s family members was posted on the ‘Missing Savannah’ Facebook page for the more than 30,000 people who follow it.

“We miss her energetic personality. We miss how caring and loving she was. We miss how funny she was and her sense of humor,” said Cecil Spurlock in the video.

Spurlock’s family members acknowledge that the search effort over the past 100 days has been remarkable.

National search teams, local groups and complete strangers have scoured the Commonwealth looking for clues.

There are even billboards seeking tips about her disappearance.

“There are so many people and groups we feel eternally grateful towards. Individuals and small groups that unselfishly search on their own or join organizations to help search,” said Cecil Spurlock in the video.

Spurlock also shows his appreciation for the law enforcement agencies who are working around the clock on her case.

He also reminds the public that there is a $10,000 reward offered for any tips that help lead directly to Savannah’s whereabouts.

“We need to know where she is. Her children deserve to know where she is. Thank you,” said Cecil Spurlock in the video.
