On the 23rd birthday of a missing Kentucky mother of four, search crews kept their eyes peeled for clues while combing corn fields and a bridge close to a rural home where she was last seen.

The crew searching for signs of Savannah Spurlock on Tuesday was made up of family friends, volunteers and K-9 teams, according to Fox News. They focused on Garrard County, near a home where authorities believe she went with three men.

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 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 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 men were 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.

Spurlock’s mother told the Lexington Herald-Leader she thinks those men may know what happened to her daughter.

“I think the guys she was with know more than they are saying,” Ellen Spurlock said. “Their story doesn’t make sense. She left with no money, no car, no coat, no phone in a different county than where she lives. It’s not like her.”

Spurlock’s mom has described her as kind and responsible.

She told Foxs News she and her daughter Facetimed, apparently the night she vanished, and "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.”

Spurlock is described by police as having shoulder-length brown/blonde hair, with brown eyes and multiple tattoos. One tattoo on her left shoulder reads “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” and the second on her back says “I’m her daughter.”

She was wearing a black sleeveless top and a maroon skirt with heels the night she disappeared.

A search at an area river is scheduled for Thursday, volunteers told Fox News.
