A Kentucky mother who was last seen leaving a Lexington, Kentucky bar on January 4th reportedly went to the home of one of the three men she met that night.

Savanah Spurlock, 22, was out at The Other Bar in Lexington with friends when she disappeared. Surveillance footage shows Spurlock leaving the bar at 2:30 a.m. with three men she did not know, according to Richmond Police. She hasn't been seen since and authorities have been piecing together the night she went missing ever since. At the time, authorities believed she was in danger, as there was no indication she ran away.

The mother of four, who gave birth to twins in December, ended up at a rural home in Gerrard County, about 40 miles from the bar, with three men. Her mother was watching the kids as she believed Savannah needed a night off. She hadn't been out in months. 

"We do know her last location was at a residence in Garrard County," Richardson told WKYT. "We were told that she left that location. That's just something we can't confirm right now. So we're looking for any information in regards to that. If somebody saw something, saw her, saw anything, just to let us know."

Police identified the three men but did not name them. No arrests have been made.

Now, more than six months later, Savannah Spurlock's body has been found. What happened to her? How did Savannah Spurlock die?

One of the men said Spurlock left the home "later that morning" but did not specify how or where she was headed," Fox News reported. Spurlock's mother, Ellen Spurlock, told the Lexington Herald-Leader she believes the men are withholding information. “I think the guys she was with know more than they are saying,” she 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 ex-boyfriend Shaquille Smith, the father of her two-year-old son and newborn twins, was also convinced the men know where she is. “I do think the guys she was with that night know exactly where she is,” Smith, 27, wrote in a message to Fox News. “I do think she is out there somewhere worried and thinking about her kids, family, and friends.”
