Update on the Investigation into the Disappearance of Harmony Montgomery

Concord, NH – Attorney General John M. Formella, Manchester Police Chief Allen D. Aldenberg, and United States Marshal Enoch F. Willard announce the following update regarding the ongoing investigation into the disappearance of Harmony Montgomery in 2019:

  • In January, officials announced that Harmony Montgomery likely disappeared sometime during the timeframe of November 28–December 10, 2019. Since that announcement, members of the Manchester Police Department, the United States Marshals Service, and other law enforcement agencies have diligently continued the investigation, devoting thousands of hours to pursuing numerous leads and gathering evidence.
  • These efforts have led investigators to conclude that Harmony Montgomery was murdered in Manchester in early December, 2019. While Harmony's remains have not yet been located, multiple sources of investigative information, including biological evidence, lead to this conclusion. As a result, this is now a homicide investigation. Investigators continue to look into the circumstances of Harmony's murder and search for her remains.
  • Due to the ongoing investigation, no further comment will be made as to the specifics or nature of the evidence.

If you have any information about the location of Harmony's remains or the circumstances of her murder, please call or text the 24-hour tip line dedicated to Harmony Montgomery at 603-203-6060.
