An 8-year-old girl who disappeared in 2019 when she was 5 but was not reported missing until two years later is presumed dead, New Hampshire police said Thursday.

Harmony Montgomery, who was five when she went missing, was likely killed in Manchester in early December 2019, Attorney General John Formella said.

Harmony Montgomery was likely killed in Manchester in early December 2019, Attorney General John Formella said.

The young girl went missing sometime between November 28 and December 10, 2019, but police were not notified of her disappearance until December 2021, according to Fox 13.

“All (investigative) efforts have led us to the conclusion that Harmony Montgomery was murdered in Manchester in early December 2019,” Formella said.

As the investigation shifts from a missing persons case to a murder investigation, police say they are still searching for the remains of the young girl.

“While Harmony’s remains have not yet been located, at this time we have multiple sources of investigative information, including recently confirmed biological evidence, that have led us to this difficult and tragic conclusion,” added Formella.

In June, police officers flocked to the home where Harmony’s father, Adam Montgomery, and his estranged wife, Kayla Montgomery, previously lived.

During that search, officers were seen removing a refrigerator from the family home, wrapping it in black plastic and loading it onto a truck.

At the time of her disappearance, Adam Montgomery had custody of Harmony. The father was charged with punching Harmony in the face in 2019. He was also charged with unrelated firearm theft but has pleaded not guilty.

No charges have been filed directly related to Harmony’s disappearance or alleged murder.

According to Fox 13 News, police only became aware that Harmony was missing when she received a report from her mother, Crystal Sorey, in November. The mother told authorities she had been trying to find the girl for months.

When police contacted her father and other family members in late December, everyone said Harmony had not been seen for over two years and there were concerns as to whether she was still alive.

“I know there has been a lot of discussion, speculation and questions over the past eight months about where the Harmony system has failed and I myself continue to share the same concerns and have many unanswered questions,” said Allen Aldenberg, Manchester Police Chief .

He added that police would do “everything within the law” to bring whoever is responsible for Harmony’s murder to justice.
