But she hasn’t given up hope, and doesn’t plan to.

“I think about this constantly,” says Ellen. “Where I live with her everything here reminds me of her daily and it’s really difficult.”

Savannah was last seen on surveillance video outside of the Other Bar in Lexington, leaving with two men.

Both were questioned by police but there have been no arrests yet.

Savannah’s mother says she’s barely hanging on, but is trying to stay strong for Savannah’s 13-year-old sister.

“She misses her Stephanie misses her sister horribly,” says Ellen. “She along with me and her dad will call the number just to check and be sure she doesn’t answer.”

Ellen is asking for the community’s help.

“It’s hard to sometimes even just talk about it like I’m doing now but I want so bad for someone to see this and call in with anything you think is small that might help,” says Ellen. “Anything.”

And she isn’t the only one.

Savannah’s aunt, Lisa, posted an emotional video to Facebook.

“This person who is someone’s daughter, someone’s mother, someone’s sister, someone’s niece, someone’s best friend,” says Lisa. “We urge you to share your story.”

Richmond Police say Savannah’s case is still their top priority.

Assistant chief Rodney Richardson says as parents, his team can empathize with Savannah’s mother.

“We know or have an idea of what Savannah’s mother could be going through so yeah that drives us,” says Officer Richardson. “But it also drives us because Savannah is a member of this community so it’s very important to us to see this through.”

Both police and Savannah’s mother say they’re hopeful and hope is needed right now.

“If I didn’t have that hope I could not go on,” says Ellen.

Anyone with information on Savannah is asked to contact Richmond Police immediately.
