It's been nearly two weeks since Ellen Spurlock has seen or heard from her daughter, Savannah. Police say they have not stopped chasing down leads in hopes of finding her.

"It's been 11 days now," Ellen Spurlock said. "I'm lost."

Savannah Spurlock, 22, has been missing since the early morning hours of Friday, January 4. She was last seen at The Other Bar in Lexington with three men. Richmond Police Department questioned those men last week.

Friends searched for Savannah Sunday. They came up empty handed.

Spurlock said each passing day is increasingly tough on family, especially Savannah's four kids. Her oldest is four years old.

"He doesn't know what's going on, but my fear is how long can that take place, you know? Mommy is not here for 11 days, each day is another day. How long can that take place? Her newborn twins, her two year old - the twins are too young but the two year old, he misses his mommy. He saw her on TV one night and said 'mommy'. He misses her."

The Richmond Police Department said this is a very active investigation and it's following every lead. Ellen is hoping one of those leads is good news, helping bring Savannah home.

"I cope with it by praying and believing that she is still out there and somebody knows something and will come forward," she said.

Ellen pleads, asking anyone with information to call the Richmond Police Department,
