MADISON COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) — A family friend of Savannah Spurlock said the community's help is still needed.

Spurlock, 23, went missing in January after a night out in Lexington. Her remains were found six months later outside of a home in Garrard County.

Kim Gibson grew close to the Spurlock family and helped with searches over the past six months.

"We were in creeks, mountains, rivers. You name it we've probably been out in it in Garrard County."

Gibson said the reality of the situation has not yet sunk in, and there are still many questions surrounding her disappearance.

"You still wonder how? Why? You know? Who else is involved? Is there anyone else involved? There's a lot more but they're working on it and they'll get to it, said Gibson."

Kentucky State Police arrested David Sparks and charged him with abuse of a corpse and tampering with physical evidence in connection to the case. Gibson said tip lines will stay open and she will check the anonymous boxes that are set up in Garrard County.

"We're still getting tips on the tip line, which is very important at this point because the investigation is still ongoing, said Gibson."

Gibson said Savannah's family will not stop until all of their questions are answered.
