New details are coming to light in the case of Harmony Montgomery, a 5 year old New Hampshire girl who was missing for two years before she was reported missing.
Montgomery was last seen in October of 2019. Police found out recently that she has been missing for two years.
A nationwide search has been launched.
Kevin Montgomery, Harmony’s great-uncle, reported her being in danger to the police but that the police did nothing.
He said that he called police to the house twice in July of 2019 because Harmony had a black eye, and again in October 19 which was the last time anyone saw her.
According to records, Harmony’s father, who had a criminal record, obtained custody of her.
Callahan Walsh, a child advocate for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, said “At the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, last year, we dealt with over 30,000 missing children’s cases.” “Only 100 cases were of this type, which we consider a LIM, that’s lost, injured or otherwise missing.”
“It’s basically when we have almost no information to go on, where a child just … seemingly has vanished into thin air. And really that’s what’s the problem with this case … there’s such little information that we understand at this point. It makes it very difficult and the clock is working against us. We’re two years late on this missing child.” said Walsh.
