Harmony Montgomery 'forced to scrub toilet with her toothbrush & stand in corner for hours by dad' before she vanished

A MISSING seven-year-old girl's dad allegedly told his brother he "bashed her around the house," forced her to scrub the toilet with her toothbrush and stand in the corner for hours during a drug a relapse.

The graphic revelations were detailed in an probable cause affidavit filed before Manchester, New Hampshire police's arrest of Adam Montgomery in connection with Harmony Montgomery's mysterious missing child case.


Montgomery is Harmony's biological father and took custody of her in February 2019, Harmony's younger brother's adopted parents told The Sun in an exclusive interview earlier this week.

Harmony's biological mom – Crystal Sorey – became concerned about her young daughter's well being and called Manchester police on November 11, 2021, according to the affidavit.

After New Hampshire child services couldn't locate Adam, Sorey told police in a followup interview on December 27 that she hadn't seen Harmony since she spotted her in the background of an Easter 2019 Facetime call with Adam, according to the affidavit.

Since then, Adam cut off all ties with Sorey and the family, the affidavit says.

Manchester police couldn't locate Adam between December 27 until his eventual arrest on January 4.

Detectives interviewed Adam's brother, who said he saw the black eye on Harmony.

Adam's uncle Kevin Montgomery told detectives on December 30 that he "had first-hand knowledge" of the injury after he returned to Manchester in 2019, the affidavit said.

That's when Adam allegedly admitted to "bashing" Harmony around the house and imposing the severe punishments on Harmony, who was five years old at the time.

Adam was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

According to the complaint, Adam is listed as "homeless."

HARMONY IS STILL MISSING

The major question remains: Where's Harmony Montgomery?

Manchester Police Chief Allen Aldenberg and Harmony's younger brother's adopted parents Blair and Jonathon Miller said they're in "emergency rescue mode."

The Millers told The Sun in a previous interview that they believe Harmony is still alive and have been doing everything they can to find their son Jamison's older sister.

They said the two were inseparable while they bounced around the foster care system.

The Manchester police chief announced more than $10,000 in rewards for information during a Monday press conference.

He and his department set up this tips hotline that can be called or texted and will be manned 24/7: 603-203-6060.

The admittedly emotional police chief was emphatic in delivering his message and pleaded with the community of Manchester to "be an adult" and come forward.

"Help us find this little girl. Someone knows something, do what is right and call in," Aldenberg said.

Then he urged the public to avoid social media theories.

“Don’t play detective. Don’t play police. Leave that to us," Chief Aldenberg said.

He said he couldn't say who and where Harmony was supposed to be and who she was supposed to be with, but she wasn't with that person or in that location.

"Quite frankly, enough is enough. This is a seven-year-old girl. Let’s find her."

HARMONY'S MOTHER RIPS CHILD SERVICES

Before the start of 2022, Harmony's mother took to Facebook to rip The New Hampshire Division for Children, Youth and Families (DCYF), saying they "failed" her daughter after filing "dozens of reports of abuse and neglect."

Child advocate Moira O’Neill in the New Hampshire DCYF told The Sun in an exclusive interview Monday morning that she can't discuss details of a particular case but "often times, the child protection agency is blamed when things go wrong."

"It’s a bigger picture than just one agency," said O'Neill, who downplayed the finger pointing at this stage of the investigation.

"This situation is horrible, but it’s horrible to blame police and the child protection case workers. They’re always left to sort things out.

"We need the family, the community, doctors or nurses all looking out for our children. It’s on all of us, but we’re always looking to blame someone."

Aldenberg said during Monday's press conference that who's to blame and where the flaw in the system was will be part of the investigation.
