Mystery of little Harmony Montgomery: Partially blind girl, 7, was reported missing after TWO YEARS
Mystery has deepened around the disappearance of 7-year-old Harmony Montgomery from Manchester, New Hampshire, who was last seen in October 2019. Police are baffled why they received a missing complaint about the child in December 2021, over two years after she actually disappeared. Harmony, who is blind in one eye, was last seen when she was 5 years old.
Manchester Police Chief Allen Aldenberg stated, "Manchester police became aware of this this week, and I know people are going to say "Well here it is 2021, almost 2022, and nobody has seen this young girl since late October 2019. So what has happened in the last few years?" Fair question. That's why I'm here today. Because we need assistance. We need help. And we do not have many answers to many questions that we have." He further urged the public, "I don't care if you saw this young girl a year ago and you think it's irrelevant – call us."
Harmony Montgomery's mysterious disappearance was not reported by her family. Rather, police learned about her through the Division of Children Youth and Families in New Hampshire, after several people filed missing complaints about her.
According to her last sighting in 2019, Harmony is around 4 feet tall and weighs 50 pounds. She has blue eyes, naturally blonde hair, and happens to be blind in her right eye. She also wears glasses to aid in her vision. In 2019, she was enrolled at a school in Massachusetts but later stopped attending. Cops are now investigating whether Harmony was caught in a custody dispute between her parents or if the police in another state were ever alerted by any child welfare agencies regarding Harmony.

Harmony's biological mother Crystal Renee Sorey recently posted a series of photos of the young girl, imploring people to come forward with any information regarding her.
"LISTEN PLEASE!!!! If ANYONE FROM THE MANCHESTER NH AREA or EVEN MASS HAS SEEN MY 7 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HARMONY OR HER FATHER ADAM MONTGOMERY (in the picture)PLEASE REACH OUT TO ME ASAP!!! SHE IS CURRENTLY MISSING!! THERE WILL BE A PRESS RELEASE THIS EVENING GIVING MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE SITUATION & who to contact!!! PLEASE SHARE THIS !!!!!!!!" Sorey posted on January 1, 2022.
In a later post, she added, "PLEASE IM BEGGING YOU!!! IF ANYONE HAS SEEN MY DAUGHTER OR KNOWS ANYTHING!!!! PLEASE CONTACT THE DETECTIVES AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS ARTICLE OR CONTACT ME DIRECTLY HARMONY MOMMYS COMING FOR YOU I PROMISE & I WILL NEVER LET YOU GO!!!! HANG ON BABY!!!!"
Sorey also lashed out at netizens who slammed her for failing to report her missing child in the past two years. "My daughter is missing & this is what ppl are focusing on?! Throwing my past on front street & trying to make it look like i dont care!" she said in a Facebook post.
Many speculated Crystal Sorey to be a habitual drug addict who had been in and out of rehab multiple times. Additionally, unofficial reports claim that Harmony's biological father and Sorey's husband Adam Montgomery is also an addict, though his present relationship situation with Sorey is unclear.
Meanwhile, Manchester police chief Allen Aldenberg said, "I have detectives working on this that all have children of their own. I do not doubt their level of commitment."
