RICHMOND, Ky. (LEX 18) – Relatives and friends will hold a prayer vigil in honor of a missing Richmond mother of four who was last seen nearly two months ago.

Savannah Spurlock was last seen in January leaving a bar in Lexington in the company of two men. Police say that a third man has also been identified and questioned along with the other two, but the men deny having anything to do with her disappearance.

Police say the 22-year-old went to a home in Garrard County with the two men seen on video with her, as well as a third man. Police say that Spurlock’s phone went out of service around 8:30 a.m. on the morning she disappeared.

Her family announced via Facebook that a public vigil would be held Saturday, Mar. 2 at 7 p.m. at Eastside Community Church in Richmond.

If you can’t attend, they ask for supporters to light a candle from home and post photos to social media with the hashtag #SavannahStrong.

Police recently released a photo of Savannah’s purse and cell phone which are also missing.
