Police in Kentucky have released images of the purse and cell phone that they believe Savannah Spurlock was carrying with her the night she vanished after leaving a bar with three men.
“We believe this is the small purse and phone that Savannah had with her the night she went missing,” the Richmond Police Department wrote on Facebook with hopes that someone will recognize them.
Spurlock, who has four children including six-week-old twins, disappeared on Jan. 4 after going out to a local Lexington establishment called "The Other Bar.” Surveillance footage showed her leaving that bar around 2:30 a.m. with three men. Law enforcement believes Spurlock, whose 23rd birthday was this week, was taken from the bar in a vehicle with two of those men and that the third man followed in a separate vehicle.
“We know that she ended up at a home in Garrard County sometime after leaving the bar with these three men," Lt. Col Rodney Richardson, assistant chief of police with the Richmond Police Department has previously said. "They did not know Savannah prior to meeting her at the bar."
Those men claim she left that Garrard County home on foot in the morning, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.
All three have been questioned and released, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. No charges have been filed against them and they haven’t been publicly named. A home was searched in Garrard County, reportedly belonging to the parents of one of the men seen with Spurlock that night, according to local outlet WDRB. Earlier this week, volunteer search crews combed corn fields and a bridge close to that home.
Spurlock’s mother told the Lexington Herald-Leader she thinks those men may know what more than they are disclosing to police.
“No matter how intoxicated she would have been, she would not have been willing to go with strangers to Garrard County,” Speratos, 21, said. “She would even have called her mom to come get her if she knew they were going to take her there — that’s how close she was with her mother, with me.”
If anyone has any information related to the cell phone or purse that police have released images of, please contact the Richmond Police Department at 859-624-4776 or email information to firstname.lastname@example.org
