The father of a 7-year-old who went missing in 2019 —but it wasn’t reported until days ago — has been arrested, officials said.
On Jan. 5, the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office announced the arrested of Adam Montgomery, 31. He is the father of Harmony Montgomery. Adam Montgomery was charged with second-degree assault in connection to the 2019 conduct against his daughter.
Officials did not release any more details about the alleged assault.
Adam Montgomery was also charged with interference with custody and two misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
The Attorney General noted while there was an arrest, the search for the child remains ongoing.
Last week, police in Manchester, New Hampshire, said they were recently informed that Harmony Montgomery went missing in 2019. She was 5 years old when she went missing. Police ask anyone with information is asked to contact (603) 203-6060. A reward of $33,000 is being offered in the case.
When police announced Hannah was missing, they said the circumstances around her two-year absence were “very concerning.”
“At this time I have dedicated all available resources and personnel to locating Harmony. I encourage anyone to contact the Manchester Police Department with any relevant information which will help us in locating Harmony,” Chief Allen D. Aldenberg said.
