Traffic stop leads to questioning of 3 men who were with Richmond woman before she went missing

Three men who were wanted for questioning in connection with a missing Richmond woman were identified and found by police in Garrard County, according to Richmond police.

Savannah Spurlock was last seen leaving The Other Bar on South Limestone on Friday, Jan. 4, Richmond police said Tuesday. Police initially said two men she left with were wanted for questioning, but Lt. Col. Rodney Richardson said Wednesday investigators also wanted to talk to a third man not included in surveillance photos released Tuesday.

A black, Chevy S-10 pickup truck one of the men was driving was spotted in Garrard County Tuesday night, Richardson said. The truck was pulled over and the officer was able to get the driver’s identification. That led to the names of the other two men, according to Richardson.

The three men were questioned by police in Garrard County, Richardson said. No charges have been filed.

Kentucky State Police and Lexington police were assisting in the search for Spurlock, and Richardson redirected further questions about the men to state police who could not be reached for comment.

The car that Spurlock drove to Lexington was found over the weekend, her mother said.

Spurlock is 5 feet tall, 140 pounds, has brown eyes, shoulder-length brown/blonde hair and multiple tattoos, police said.

A tattoo on her left shoulder reads, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” and a tattoo on her back says “I’m her daughter.” She was last seen wearing a black sleeveless top and a maroon skirt with heels.

Spurlock attended Madison Central High School, according to her Facebook page. LEX 18’s Leigh Searcy reported Spurlock was a mother of four children, including twin boys who were just weeks old.
