MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– It has been 11 excruciating weeks since a Madison County woman disappeared after leaving a Lexington bar.

Every day, Ellen Spurlock hopes her daughter, Savannah, will walk through the door.

Savannah Spurlock is a mother of four, including twin baby boys. She was last seen on surveillance video leaving The Other Bar in downtown Lexington on January 4. She was with two men who were seen on camera and a third who was not seen on camera.

All three have been questioned and police say all three deny having to do with her disappearance. Her mother said Savannah’s phone last pinged in Garrard County, her last known whereabouts. After countless searches, police have never found Savannah’s purse or cell phone.

They know her phone went out of service around 8:30 a.m. the morning she disappeared.

Ellen says that not knowing is torture for her, and she believes that the last people seen with her daughter know something.

“She was okay when she was first with them,” said Spurlock. “I saw that I saw her on Facetime video, she was okay, but she was with people she just met. Where did she go?”

Ellen says that the search for Savannah has not let up. Ellen also said that her living room is filled with boxes of donations from strangers to help Savannah’s children.

The family also learned that Lamar Advertising will soon be displaying digital billboards with Savannah’s photo and information on it to help generate tips about her whereabouts.
