“Somebody knows something and I want that person to think about what they are doing to all these people who are devastated by Savannah’s disappearance,” Ellen Spurlock, 47, said. “She has four babies that need her, that want her home.”
Her comments came during an interview Friday with WKYT-TV, the three-week anniversary of the disappearance.
At the same time, Ellen released a new photo of her 22-year-old daughter that was taken just before she disappeared. She told Fox News it was taken two weeks before she was reported missing.
In the new image, Savannah has noticeably darker hair and what appears to be a fuller face. It would have been a few short weeks after she gave birth to twin boys in December.
In the interview with WKYT, Ellen said if the people with information about her daughter’s disappearance knew the nightmare she was living not knowing what happened to her daughter, they would help bring Savannah home.
“I’m still holding onto hope. I have great faith,” Ellen said.
Savannah was last spotted on surveillance video leaving a bar in Lexington with two men.
The two men have not been named or publicly identified as suspects, though Richmond police say they aren’t necessarily cleared, Fox News reported last week. Police have also questioned a third man who was with the petite woman and the other two men when they left the bar. There have been no arrests.
In addition, police have reportedly seized a car from a home owned by the parents of one of the three men.
Ellen told Fox News that around 3 a.m. Jan. 4, Savannah FaceTimed her from the driver’s seat of a car with three other occupants. Ellen said her daughter told her she would be home in the morning.
Ellen said that she did not get a good look at the people in the back, who were being loud. She said that the man who was driving was a black man who she did not recognize. She said she did not know if he was one of the men in the surveillance video.
The father of the twins is Savannah’s former boyfriend Shaquille Smith.
Smith is also the father of Savannah’s 2-year-old son.
Savannah’s fourth child is a 4-year-old boy.
