300 Tips Pour In, $104K Reward for Missing Harmony Montgomery, Last Seen in 2019 But Not Reported Missing For 2 Years

Officials said Wednesday that Manchester police have received around 300 tips in connection with missing 7-year-old Harmony Montgomery.

According to Manchester Police Chief Allen Aldenberg, tips have been pouring into a dedicated hotline as the reward for information leading to Harmony’s whereabouts increased to $104,000.

“Somebody out there knows something,” Aldenberg said during a Wednesday news conference. “And whatever strikes at people’s conscience as a human being to come forward and do the right thing, whatever it takes is what we’re going to be doing.”

“I’m going to be honest with you. I’m a little discouraged, but were going to stay focused on finding Harmony and bringing her home.”

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Harmony hasn’t been seen since 2019 but was only reported missing in late 2021.

Court documents released earlier this month indicate that police also received a call from the child’s biological mother, Crystal Sorey, on November 18, 2021, claiming Harmony was missing. Sorey told police that Harmony’s father, Adam Montgomery, had physical custody of the girl and she couldn’t get in touch with him.

Sorey added that she lost custody of Harmony in 2018 due to drug issues.

New Hampshire police reached out to the New Hampshire Department of Children’s Services to locate Adam Montgomery, but by December 27, the agency couldn’t find him. Police began searching for Montgomery when they learned that Harmony “had not been physically seen since October/November 2019.”

Police also spoke to Adam Montgomery’s brother, Michael, who explained that Montgomery abused Harmony and gave her a black eye. Police then reached out to Montgomery’s cousin, Kevin, who witnessed the alleged incident.

“I bashed her around this house,” Montgomery said, according to Kevin.

Kevin told investigators that Montgomery was upset at Harmony when her infant brother started crying because he told her to keep an eye on him. In anger, Montgomery allegedly spanked Harmony, made her scrub a toilet with a toothbrush, and forced her to stand in the corner for hours.

On December 31, police located Adam Montgomery sleeping in a car in New Hampshire with his current girlfriend. The girlfriend told police that Montgomery never once talked about Harmony.

When investigators interviewed Kayla Montgomery, she said that she hadn’t spoken to Adam since November 2021 and hadn’t seen Harmony since late 2019.

Montgomery reportedly told police that Harmony’s mother came to “pick her up in Manchester, NH around Thanksgiving 2019.” Montgomery claimed he hadn’t seen his daughter since.

Police said Adam Montgomery’s statements were inconsistent and secretive, with the suspect telling them things such as, “I have nothing to say” and, “If I’m not under arrest, I’m leaving.”

One of the Last Known Sightings

One of the last known sightings of Harmony happened in October 2019 at a home off of Gilford Street in Manchester, New Hampshire, after a family spat broke out. The girl’s uncle, Kevin Montgomery, said Adam Montgomery then left with Harmony and broke off contact with several family members.

Kevin Montgomery said Harmony “looked like a scared puppy” the last time he saw her.

Harmony is described as standing around 4 feet tall and weighing 50 pounds. She has blond hair and blue eyes. She is blind in her right eye and should be wearing glasses. The most recent photographs available were taken when she was 5 years old.
