Police released new details about the disappearance of the missing Kentucky mother Savannah Spurlock.

Savannah, 22, had given birth to twin boys in December when she went out for a night at a bar on January 4 and never came back home.

Investigators told Fox News, the mother-of-four was taken to a rural home about 40 miles away from Other Bar in Lexington with three men on the morning she went missing. Lt. Col Rodney Richardson said:

“We know that she ended up at a home in Garrard County sometime after leaving the bar with these three men.

They did not know Savannah prior to meeting her at the bar.”

According to ABC News, there’s no evidence she left home and ran away, police believe she’s in danger. Her mother, Ellen Spurlock, feels sure that she was taken against her will.

Ellen said she last spoke to her daughter around 3 a.m. on FaceTime on January 4 before she vanished. She told Fox:

“[She] observed that there was a man driving the car. Savannah was in the passenger seat. There were at least two people in the back seat talking. … I heard one of them tell me to ‘chill.’ They were also hollering other things but I couldn’t make it out. I was just checking on my daughter.”

Ellen recalled to ABC:

“She told me she was fine. When I asked her where she was, she said she was in Lexington.

She promised she would be home later that morning. She did not seem out of the ordinary.”

She added:

“I don’t know anything about her relationship with the men that she was with. When she Facetimed me I did not recognize the gentleman driving the car. I had never seen him before. I could not see who was in the back of the car because it was so dark out.”

As previously reported by Dearly, surveillance footage captured Savannah leaving the bar with two men. Richardson told ABC, it remains unclear if the men Savannah left the bar with were the same people she was inside the car with while talking to her mom.

No one has been charged, however, police have questioned one of the men connected to the rural home. Someone said she left the house late Monday morning.

Savannah’s phone was turned off around 8:30 a.m. the day of the incident. Investigators have not confirmed if she ever left the house. Ellen told Fox:

“I do not believe Savannah left this home on her own. She had no car, no money, no phone and no coat. Where would she go? I don’t believe that for a second.”

The devastated mother beseeched the men connected to the disappearance to come forward with information that could lead to her daughter’s whereabouts.

She said:

“Savannah’s She has four young kids that need their mother. Whatever you know, you need to come forward now. I’m begging you to do this as a human being.”

Ellen said her daughter rarely partied or went out but loved her kids and would never put a night of fun before her children.

    She just gave birth to twins in dec? Had 4 children total ? I really feel bad for them kids my life with my sibling are just now finding our father’s after 72 yrs. So sad I will pray for them.

  • Catherine 9 months ago

    I’m sorry to be so bold, but a 22 year old SINGLE mom of 4 has got to make better choices. Let this be a lesson for you other moms out there. I mean, what mom leaves a bar at 3am with THREE men unknown to her and goes away with them?? It’s ridiculous. You can tell me I shouldn’t say that and I’m not suppose to judge, but good grief!! If someone has the balls to say this then maybe someone will actually heed to it and not do this dumb crap. Moms need a night out sometimes, but she doesn’t need to go home with 3 strange men. What did she think was going to happen? No, she didn’t deserve this, but we all know what 3 strange men have on their mind when a woman is stupid enough to go home with them. And they’re gonna do exactly what they want to because 1 woman can’t stop 3 men.

      A nicer “warning” would have been to simply tell young women to heed warning because of this incident.
      All that other crap was YOU, being JUDGEMENTAL!
      Can you not just let this woman be found (for her family’s sake) before you stone her, please?
      I would never wish for bad things to happen to ANYONE but in your case, I just hope IF something ever happens to your children/ grandchildren, your words from this post haunt you at night!
      Everyone can have an opinion, yes- but don’t you think the family of this girl reads EVERY post… hoping to find someone saying something relavent to finding this mom of 4? Don’t you think your asinine comment will only be like rubbing salt in their wounds? But hey- as long as the world knows how YOU feel about what this woman did, I guess that’s all that matters, huh? Feel better? After all… it’s ALL ABOUT YOU!

      • Anonymous 9 months ago

        Her being 22 with four kids is not an issue! She couldn’t have had one at 18, one at 20, and the twins at 22 which is how she has 4 in total.. other than that she would have only 3 kids but all that’s irrelevant to the fact that that there is a mother who’s child is missing and four babies whose mother is missing! We don’t know this girl so we cannot make assumptions. Her mother said she rarely goes out; maybe she needed a break and was battling some postpartum depression and I’m sure sleep deprivation that could maybe along with drinking made her not use her better judgment. These guys knew they were up to no good which is why they allowed her to FaceTime her mother while she was still coherent. Maybe after that she was drugged and raped and I pray not but possibly murdered. Funny how after she is considered missing her phone is powered off!

    • momof4 9 months ago

      It’s really difficult to understand, isn’t it? Personally, I don’t know any mom, single or not, feeling up to being out this late with 4 children at home and being 1 month postpartum. I’m not saying she did not love her kids but she was far from ready for parenthood. Catching dinner and one glass of wine with a friend? Understandable. This is not, she is likely dead and now those innocent little children are left to pay the price. My sympathy is for them, not her. And while her mom can say this isn’t like her, her life up to this point, 4 kids, no husband or significant other mentioned….poor choices were not new to her. I hope they find her b/c no one should suffer the agony of not knowing if she is dead or alive. Sad story.

        My husband and I have 4 kids. He never would have left me alone to go out drinking with his pals one month after #4. What do women not get about this? Marry a guy or at least be with a man who is a grown up and actually wants to be a very involved dad. I was still feeling lousy 1 month postpartum, with a 2 year old, 5 and 9 year old all needing attention too. My husband and I do a lot independently of each other but he is smart enough to see when I am overwhelmed. Once our little guy started sleeping better, my hormones leveled out, etc…life resumed with a few date nights and solo nights out with friends. Obviously, if he had left me 1 month pp with baby #1, we would have been one and done. I physically gave birth but we are parents, not just me.

  • S.G 9 months ago

    I’d be surprised if the 3 men weren’t involved. Seems pretty likely that they know what happened to her. Her mother said she “rarely partied” but you don’t end up with 4 kids at 22 by being the straight laced girl who curls up with a book on Friday nights. Then she leaves a bar to go home with 3 strange men? As harsh as it may sound, she seems like she was a pretty reckless individual so who knows what happened. Hopefully for her children’s sake they find her alive and well but it doesn’t sound good.

    I pray she comes home safely for her family. Most importantly her children. She wasn’t acting to responsible when she went out and left with 2 men just after a month of having twins. I am a mother of twins and know how much care they needed when we first brought them home. Not good on her part at all. Whoever agreed to watch her children should have made her stay home. I pray she’s ok and will come home soon.

  • Nancy Johnson 9 months ago

    I don’t think this case is going to have a happy ending for the 22 year old mum and her babies. She did display wreckless behaviour leaving a bar with 2 or 3 men. That is inviting disaster! I think perhaps she has been ‘accidentally or deliberately’ killed by one of the 3 men involved and they are trying to cover it all up. I’m surprised the police aren’t arresting and detaining all 3 of them and forensically examining the house she was supposedly taken to. Her poor sweet children.

  • Cheri 9 months ago

    Some of you women are unbelievable! Making it sound like this was her fault! Judging this woman. No one knows the circumstances of what was going on. So unless you have something positive to help this family just keep your mouth shut. You are not putting a warning out there for anyone. You just want to put your two cents in. This is as bad as when a rape victim is asked “what were you wearing”….”had you been drinking” all of it irrelevant! SHES THE VICTIM!

    People are so quick to judge! No one was there, therefore no one knows exactly what happened! So she is 22 with 4 kids. 2 being twins mind you! What does that matter? Who cares she went out for a night of fun! Even moms need to their own time and her mother said she didn’t do it often! Everyone who is judging I’m sure would have a different tone if it was one of your family members in the situation. Think of how her mother is feeling and how her kids could posssibly live a life without their mother. I’m sure everyone who is judging her all always made the right choices at 22 years old! Who knows what exactly went on that night with those men!!! I pray this poor mother is found for the sake of her children! Sending love to her family, mother and kids!!!!

    • Susan 9 months ago

      No one said “She deserves it” Karrie, just that she made bad choices that may have led up to what actually happened to her. I used to watch crime shows on TV with my teens, and although the victim never “deserved” what they got, sometimes their bad choices and lack of common sense precipitated the final outcome. All of our actions, whether good or bad, affect the lives of others, and of course, our own. That was used as a lesson to my teens, and I hope they learned from it to think things through and make better choices. I pray that this young woman is found alive and returned to her family, but the odds are horribly against that happening at this point.

  • Maria 9 months ago

    I really think she could have made better choices that evening but she was just 22 yrs old. I think back at some stupid crap I did..like leaving a party with a guy I just met and his friend.. I immediately thought better and left..but I had my own transportation. Did she leave her car at the bar she was at and leave with these guys? Maybe she met a guy and the other two were friends out together. We don’t know the entire story. We shouldn’t blame the victim here. I don’t care about her poor choice that morning. What about the men that did something possibly with her? We should be putting the heat on them..not her. This is ridiculous..

    I’ve done a fair share of search and surveillance missions in my past military years as a helicopter pilot and commercial drone operator.
    I know a Louisiana group is searching the waterways. It would be beneficial to multitask and more thoroughly rule out land areas. This has to be done prior to spring arriving. The added foliage inhibits the ability to spot objects, individuals, and overturned soil.
    I would start out by drawing a 3 hour driving radius around the home she was last suspected of being at. Using a satellite map of all roads within the search zone take a basic grid by grid first look. Assuming the average person could or would carry 140# half a mile from a roadway through brush limits the area. Crosscheck with any known satellite geographic anomalies (caves, valleys, wells, rock formations, streams, etc). This shouldn’t be this difficult. The more that is ruled out the more resources that can be focused on more pressing areas in the hope that she is still alive. I have some prior responsibilities I’ve agreed to over the next week and a half. If there’s no progress by Feb 16th I may drive down and volunteer a week in person. If someone could send me a link to a volunteer page or general information it would be greatly appreciated.

  • Cat 9 months ago

    I read comments on an article about her on FB, they were from women who live in her town. The kids have different dads, and this “responsible, non-partying 22 year old” has never had custody of her kids. They were taken when born, her mother has custody of her twins and the dads of the others have them. So what exactly did she need a break from? SMH! At least she didn’t abort these babies. That’s the only thing I can really say. Who goes off with 3 strange men and thinks you’ll be ok?? Sounds like drugs or prostitution. I’ll say it and I don’t care. People need to wake up. You can’t do drugs or be a prostitute without a bad outcome. You can say she wasn’t doing those things but if you ask almost anyone a reason for going with 3 strange men at 3 in the morning, they will tell you the same thing I did. Take this victim out of it and think of a woman making the decision to do this. If you have a clue about this mean world we live in, you’ll agree: sex, drugs and money are the reason.

    I find it hilarious, when parents say “she would never do something like that”, when THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT SHE DID. There are only two reasons a woman would go from a bar to a remote house with three men. If you need an explanation, you’re too naive to be allowed out of the house.

    Some of you people are truly disgusting! WHO CARES WHAT SHE WAS DOING OR WHY?!? Seriously!! None of those things matter AT ALL! She is a human being! Her mother & children are fellow human beings! The ONLY thing that matters is that she is missing & her family is suffering! The majority of you are judgmental assholes who aren’t helping a damn thing-actually making the situation worse! Do you think her mother needs to read all that crap?! The RIGHT thing to do here is to pray for her to be found, & to wish on all the stars that her family is able to heal from whatever hell they are going thru. If you can’t do the right thing, then PLEASE do the next best for this poor family, & SHUT UP! Because you may not agree with her choices,- & that’s FINE! You don’t have to!- But your manners & humanity is seriously lacking something, & your soul needs some serious work if you can’t even have the respect that you were taught in freaking kid’s movies—if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all! I hope & pray for the healing of this family. And I hope & pray for the souls of those of you who couldn’t help yourselves & “had to” blame the victims & insert your “important” opinions of this girl & her choices. It may be time for a whole lot of self reflection, people. “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her”
