Missing Harmony Montgomery: Authorities continue to search for family home for 7-year-old last seen in 2019
New Hampshire authorities continued their search on Saturday morning for Harmony Montgomery, 7, at the Manchester home where she was last seen in 2019 during a police call to the address.
The current owner of the address is cooperating but is not involved in the case, Manchester Police Chief Allen Aldenberg has previously said.
“Due to the ongoing investigation, no further information will be released at this time,” New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella said on Saturday. “Officials are calling on the public to respect the privacy of current residents … and to stay away from their property while the investigation continues.”
Public records show the Gilford Street home changed hands in the spring of 2020.

An old real estate listing shows that one bedroom had walls decorated with Minnie Mouse decals.
“At one point Harmony was seen at this address, and that’s why he had some interest,” Aldenberg said. “And if we are to continue to be interested in this address, we will.”
Authorities arrested Montgomery’s biological father and stepmother Adam Montgomery and Kayla Montgomery on Wednesday.

Adam Montgomery, whose criminal history of violence included a guilty plea for shooting a man in an armed robbery in 2014, nonetheless obtained sole custody of his daughter Harmony on February 22, 2019 and transferred her in New Hampshire. Her mother, Crystal Sorey, had to deliver Harmony to the state of Massachusetts in the summer of 2018.

Between July 1 and July 22, 2019, Montgomery allegedly punched the girl in the face, who was 5 at the time and suffered from visual impairment, including blindness in her right eye.
At least two family members – Kayla Montgomery and her father’s uncle Kevin Montgomery – later told police they saw her with one black eye. His own uncle, Michael Montgomery, said he heard about it. But none of them reported it to police until last week, when Manchester detectives began demanding answers.
Child welfare agencies in both states declined to comment, citing privacy concerns.
