LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – Another day of searching for Savannah Spurlock, the mother of four who’s been missing for over a month now, turned up no sign of the Richmond woman.

It was a foggy start to the search for Savannah Spurlock on the Kentucky River. Crews from the Cajun Coast Search and Rescue Teams say they’re not giving up hope they will find answers for her family.

Toney Wade with the groups says they chose this location to search because it’s a remote area. They’ve been in town 11 days now and haven’t come up with any sign of Savannah.

Wade says they’ve searched about 50 miles on foot and today they plan to search about 20 miles of the river.

“We  are struggling right now to try to find places that would be feasible to search and I’ve been with Richmond
PD and we put our heads together and come up with this area. So we’re gonna put some boats in the water, put the dog in the boat and take a boat ride, see what we can find,” Wade told LEX 18.

The search group will stay until Tuesday.
