The search for Harmony Montgomery, a New Hampshire girl who disappeared in 2019 at age 5 but was not reported missing until late last year, is now considered a homicide investigation, authorities said Thursday.
Authorities have concluded that Harmony was murdered, New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella said at a news conference.
"Our commitment to bringing Harmony home has not wavered, nor will it," said Manchester Police Chief Allen Aldenberg.
Police first became aware that Harmony might be missing when they received a call from the girl’s mother, Crystal Sorey, in November.
She had been unsuccessfully trying to locate the girl for months, police said.
