Harmony Montgomery’s stepmother arrested for perjury – Boston News, Weather, Sports

MANCHESTER, NH (WHDH) — MANCHESTER, NH (AP) — The stepmother of a New Hampshire girl who disappeared in 2019 was arrested for perjury, police said.

Kayla Montgomery, 31, was arrested at the Manchester Police Department on Friday when she arrived for a daily check-in. WMUR-TV reported. The check-ins are required as part of Montgomery’s bail requirements after she was arrested on unrelated charges of receiving stolen firearms.

Manchester Police Chief Allen Aldenberg said Montgomery had been arrested on two counts of lying before a grand jury on perjury charges. Other details were not immediately released. She is due to appear in court on Monday.

Her stepdaughter Harmony Montgomery was last seen in 2019 at the age of 5, but authorities didn’t know she was missing until last year. She is still considered missing.

Aldenberg told WMUR-TV that the arrest was “another step in the investigation into Harmony Montgomery’s whereabouts.”

“We will continue to do everything in our power to bring this case to a resolution,” Aldenberg said.

Kayla Montgomery was previously charged with theft by deception after police said she falsely claimed her stepdaughter was living with her to receive welfare benefits. She has pleaded not guilty and was released on bail Last month.

Adam Montgomery, Harmony’s father, has been charged with assault alleging he punched Harmony in the face in July 2019. He also faces unrelated firearm theft charges and has pleaded not guilty.

The couple, described as estranged, told police Harmony was taken to her mother in Massachusetts around Thanksgiving 2019. Her mother said she last saw her daughter during a video call around Easter that year.

The police have received hundreds of tips. They’re offering $150,000 for information leading them to the missing child.
