(UnitedVoice.com) – In December 2021, law enforcement in Manchester, NH, shared a Facebook post about a 7-year-old girl who’d just been reported missing. Although she was reported missing last year, the family hadn’t actually seen Harmony Montgomery, who is partially blind, since just after Thanksgiving in 2019. There’s now a $104,000 reward in the case for information that leads to the child.

In November 2021, Harmony’s biological mother, Crystal Sorey, told officers she hadn’t seen her daughter since 2019. She said she’d been searching for her daughter for months but the child’s father, Adam Montgomery, blocked her from contacting him. He gained full custody of the child in February 2019.
Officers began searching for the child and in January 2022, they arrested the father and his wife, Kayla Montgomery. According to authorities, between July 1 and July 22 of 2019, Adam Montgomery allegedly punched the girl, then just 5 years old, in her right eye and her face. He’s charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, second-degree assault, and one charge of interference with custody. Kayla, who claims she thought Harmony was with Sorey, has been charged with welfare fraud and theft by deception for collecting food stamps for the child.
Anyone with information about the case should text or call 603-203-6060.
