Authorities have arrived at Harmony Montgomery’s last known residence to investigate the disappearance of the New Hampshire girl.
CONCORD, NH – Authorities arrived at Harmony Montgomery’s last known residence Saturday to investigate the disappearance of the New Hampshire girl, who disappeared in 2019 at age 5 but was not reported missing until late last year.
Law enforcement agencies were working out of a home in Manchester, said state attorney general John M. Formella, Hillsborough County Prosecutor John Coughlin and Manchester Police Chief Allen Aldenberg. Details were not released.
Harmony’s father and stepmother have been arrested on charges related to their welfare.
Adam Montgomery, 31, was charged with charges including not having Harmony in his custody. Kayla Montgomery, 31, was charged with social fraud on suspicion of obtaining $ 1,500 in food stamps from December 2019 to June 2021 for Harmony at a time when the girl was not living with Kayla and Adam.
They have both pleaded not guilty.
Police first realized that Harmony might be missing when they received a call from the girl’s mother in November. He had been trying to locate the girl for months, police said.
Police said they had contacted Adam Montgomery and other family members in late December. An affidavit said police told her that Harmony “had not been physically observed in over two years and that we were concerned whether or not she was still alive.”
Police are still requesting help from the public in locating Harmony, Formella said in a statement. Anyone with information can call 603-203-6060, he said. Manchester Police have also said that a reward for information that helps find Harmony has also increased to $ 94,000 from local donations, WMUR-TV reported.
