The little girl is still reported missing.

According to the Manchester Police Department, a few days back, they had received a report that a young child had disappeared, even though her family had last seen her two years back. 

"The circumstances surrounding this prolonged absence are very concerning and are being thoroughly investigated," police said.

As per the affidavit filed on Wednesday in Hillsborough County Superior Court, Harmony's mother, Crystal Sorey, contacted the Manchester Police Department on November 18 and told them she had not seen her daughter in at least half a year.

The mother also told authorities that she had not seen her daughter, who was living with her dad due to the physical and legal custody, and last talked to her in April 2019 on a video call.

With raising concern, on December 27, the New Hampshire Division for Children, Youth, and Families told investigators that it could not find Harmony.

Police with the investigation later found that the child was last seen at a Manchester home by authorities during a "call for service" at the end of October 2019, Manchester Police Chief Allen Aldenberg said during a news conference on Friday.

The mother then revealed to the police that both she and her former partner have a history of substance abuse but she has managed to abstain from drugs and now was searching for both her former partner and her daughter.

The last time she saw Harmony, on the video call, she seemed scared, Sorey stated to police, as per the affidavit.

According to the affidavit, on Friday, investigators found Montgomery sleeping in a car with his girlfriend.

"During our roadside interview with Adam, he made some contradictory statements during our interaction, which raised our suspicion and concern for [Harmony's] well-being," it went on to say.
