HARMONY Montgomery’s last-known home was searched twice in the past week as her mom revealed new details about when she last saw her daughter.
The missing seven-year-old girl’s last known 2019 residence — on Gilford Street in Manchester, New Hampshire — was searched by police on Saturday morning.

However, officials have yet to reveal why they followed through with another search, after conducting one at the home last weekend.
In a statement released Saturday, New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella said: “Due to the ongoing investigation, no additional information will be released at this time.
“Officials ask the public to respect the privacy of the current residents and to stay off of their property as the investigation continues.”
Manchester Police Chief Allen Aldenberg previously said that the current homeowner of the address is not involved but cooperating in the case, according to Fox News.
Aldenberg also noted: “At one point, Harmony was seen at that address, and that’s why he had some interest.
“And if we need to continue to have interest in that address, we will.”

Following the search, a vigil was also held on Saturday by Crystal Sorey, Harmony’s biological mom.
Sorey attended the candlelight vigil for her daughter in a park with friends and family.
In a public message to her missing daughter, Sorey told NBC10 Boston: “Hi, baby. If you can see me and hear me, I want you to know that I never stopped looking for you and I won’t stop fighting until I find you, okay?
“You stay strong and mommy’s right here fighting for you. I love you!”
She has faith that, even though she hasn’t seen Harmony in years, she’s still alive.
“I don’t feel like she’s gone. I just don’t feel that in my heart,” Sorey said. “Like, I don’t feel like I lost her. And a mother knows, a mother knows if your baby’s here or not. I know she’s here.”
The vigil comes after Sorey revealed new details about the last time she saw her daughter.
Sorey claims she saw her daughter during a FaceTime call with Adam Montgomery, Harmony’s father, around Easter 2019.
“Crystal stated Adam was visible in the background of the video call,” read court documents.
“Crystal recalled that H.M. seemed frightened, and believes that was the last time she actually saw her daughter.”
Since then, Adam cut off all ties with Sorey and the family, the affidavit says.
Harmony was reported missing to the Manchester Police Department over two years later in November 2021 by her mother.
Members of the police department tried to track Adam Montgomery down around December to talk to him and other family members to ensure that Harmony was safe.
Officers were unable to get in contact with Adam but were able to speak with family members who associated with him.
Detective Christopher Abele was able to contact Adam’s brother, Michael Montgomery, on December 30, court docs say.
“Michael recalled during his last physical contact with H.M. and Adam, he had concerns that Adam was physically abusive towards H.M.,” read the documents.
Michael had said that Adam was allegedly “super short” with Harmony and told authorities that other family members said that Adam had given the girl a black eye.
Adam was arrested on January 4 and charged with endangering the welfare of a child. However, it is still unknown where Harmony is.
Meanwhile, the stepmom of the missing New Hampshire girl has been arrested after she allegedly continued to claim food stamp benefits for Harmony for more than a year after she was last seen.
Anyone with information about Harmony’s case is urged to call the Manchester Police Department at 603-203-6060.
