MANCHESTER, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The father of a missing Manchester 7-year-old girl has been arrested on assault charges. Adam Montgomery, the father of missing child Harmony Montgomery, was taken in on an arrest warrant on Tuesday.
He's being charged with a felony second-degree assault in 2019 against his daughter, as well as as misdemeanor charges of child endangerment and custody interference.
Police said Wednesday morning that they have not yet found the little girl, who was reported missing last week after not having been seen since 2019.
The reward for information in the case offered by several local businesses was raised to $43,000 on Tuesday. Manchester Police Chief Allen D. Aldenberg said Tuesday that the police there are still operating under the assumption that Harmony is alive.
"Somewhere out there, this little girl is in need of help," he said.
While Montgomery was due to be arraigned in Hillsborough Superior Court on Wednesday morning, he agreed to waive arraignment and will remain in jail without bail. Manchester Police are asking anyone with information to call their tip line at 603-203-6060.
