The search for little Harmony Montgomery: Officials in hazmat suits take father's fridge from former home
MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE: The law enforcement officers from state and federal agencies swarmed at an apartment building, located in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Tuesday, June 14, in connection with the missing case of eight-year-old Harmony Montgomery, who disappeared in 2019. FBI officials were later seen taking a refrigerator wrapped in black plastic from the apartment and loading it onto a waiting truck.
As reported by DailyMail, officials said investigators took over 644 Union St, which is where the missing girl's father Adam Montgomery, and his estranged wife Kayla Montgomery previously lived. FBI personnel were seen working on the second floor of the apartment building and later, the investigators were seen confiscating a refrigerator. This is the second time investigators have searched the property. Earlier on January 4, investigators searched the home and the garden, and aerial footage taken at the time showed a crime scene tent set up in the backyard.

The missing case of Harmony
According to Boston 25 News, Harmony Montgomery was five when she disappeared between November 28 and December 10 in 2019. Earlier this year, officials said they had determined that Harmony was with her father, 30-year-old Adam Montgomery, and her stepmother Kayla Montgomery, 31, along with the couple’s two children when they were evicted from a home in Manchester on Nov 27, 2019. Adam and Kayla Montgomery told police that the young girl was living with her mother in Massachusetts. Harmony’s mother Crystal Sorey said on June 14 that the search in New Hampshire was rough. “I know in my heart this is no longer a rescue mission,” she said. “They’re looking for a body.”

As per the reports, in March, a jury indicted Adam Montgomery on a charge of second-degree assault. He is accused of striking Harmony in the face in July 2019, although authorities said the incident was not directly related to his daughter’s disappearance. On the other hand, they also arrested Kayla Montgomery on a charge of welfare fraud after investigators alleged that she obtained $1,500 in food stamp benefits between December 2019 and June 2021 as she did not remove Harmony from her family account despite the fact that the girl was no longer living with them.
Police are offering $150K for information that will lead them to the missing child, who is described as a blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl weighing 50 pounds and standing about four- feet tall. She is blind in one eye. Anyone with information about Harmony Montgomery's disappearance can call or text a 24-hour tip line at 603-203-6060.
