The father of missing New Hampshire child Harmony Montgomery has been arrested in connection with her disappearance, Manchester, New Hampshire police announced Wednesday. Adam Montgomery, age 31, was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with felony second-degree assault from a 2019 incident with Harmony. 

Montgomery was also charged with one misdemeanor charge of interference with custody and two misdemeanor charges of endangering the welfare of a child, but has not been directly charged with Harmony's disappearance. 

Police continue to search for 7-year-old Harmony, who was only reported missing in the last week of December — even though she was last seen in 2019. No additional information has been released about the investigation but police say they have spoken with members of the Montgomery family.

Anyone with information about her disappearance is encouraged to call the Manchester tip line at 1-603-203-6060. A combined reward of $33,000 has been offered for information or knowledge leading to her whereabouts.
