Police also arrested the man who lives there -- who was named as a "person of interest" -- on charges of abuse of a corpse and tampering with physical evidence.

Police have found remains and made an arrest in the search for missing mom Savannah Spurlock.

Investigators found the body, which has yet to be identified, at a Kentucky property they searched six months ago, when the mother-of-four first disappeared.

They returned to the house after a tip-off phone call from a man who reported a foul odor coming from the property.

David Sparks, who was previously named as a person of interest, and who lives at the home with his parents, was arrested on charges of abuse of a corpse and tampering with physical evidence.

After digging up the body, police also found other physical evidence linking the two: "These items were last known to be in the control of only two individuals, the missing person, and the above," Sparks' citation said, per WKYT.

Spurlock, who was 23 at the time of her disappearance, was last seen on January 4, just days after giving birth to twins. She is also mom to a two and four year old.

On the night she went missing, video surveillance showed her leaving a Lexington bar with three men, whom police believe she did not previously know, but who knew each other.

She drove with them to a rural home 40 miles away, investigators say, FaceTiming her mother en route to let her know she would come home later that morning. She never did.

All three were questioned by police but no arrests were made. Police never revealed the identity of the three men, nor would they confirm if Sparks was one of them.

Police had searched the house and the surrounding areas for weeks after the disappearance, but never found any solid leads.

The state medical examiner's office is currently performing an autopsy. The body was too badly decomposed to immediately identify.
