HARMONY Montgomery’s mother said she last saw her seven-year-old daughter looking “frightened” during a FaceTime call in 2019, according to an affidavit.
Crystal Sorey, Harmony’s biological mom, 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.
Manchester Police Chief Allen Aldenberg and Harmony’s younger brother’s adopted parents Blair and Jonathon Miller said they’re in “emergency rescue mode.”
The Millers told The Sun in a previous interview that they believe Harmony is still alive and have been doing everything they can to find their son Jamison’s older sister.
They said the two were inseparable while they bounced around the foster care system.
The Manchester police chief announced more than $10,000 in rewards for information during a Monday press conference.
He and his department set up this tips hotline that can be called or texted and will be manned 24/7: 603-203-6060.
The admittedly emotional police chief was emphatic in delivering his message and pleaded with the community of Manchester to “be an adult” and come forward.
“Help us find this little girl. Someone knows something, do what is right and call in,” Aldenberg said.
Then he urged the public to avoid social media theories.
“Don’t play detective. Don’t play police. Leave that to us,” Chief Aldenberg said.
He said he couldn’t say who and where Harmony was supposed to be and who she was supposed to be with, but she wasn’t with that person or in that location.
“Quite frankly, enough is enough. This is a seven-year-old girl. Let’s find her.”
HARMONY’S MOTHER SAYS CHILD SERVICES ‘FAILED’ HER
In a Facebook post, Sorey said that the New Hampshire DCYF “failed” her daughter.
In all-caps, she wrote, “Myself & her family have filed dozens of reports of abuse & neglect & nothing was done until I called the police & wrote a letter to the NH mayor.”
Sorey was likely referring to the Manchester, New Hampshire Mayor Joyce Craig.
The mayor received an email in December “primarily regarding issues with follow-up” on Harmony’s case from the Division for Children, Youth and Families, but the mayor’s office did not confirm if Sorey was the sender.
“I’m calling on all my guardian angels to surround my baby & keep her safe & bring her home to me & her brothers,” Sorey also posted, with a photo collage of Harmony and some of her siblings.
In one comment, she said that she was not yet “allowed” to say more about the details of the disappearance and that she would not share information that might interfere with the investigation.
