Haunting evidence needed in Harmony Montgomery case revealed by ex-FBI as missing girl’s family ‘afraid’ of answers

It will likely take “a while, i.e. weeks,” to process and analyze the evidence — including a refrigerator — removed from the former home of a missing girl’s father, a retired FBI agent has said.

Earlier this week it seemed like the world was finally getting answers about what happened to eight-year-old Harmony Montgomery after she seemingly disappeared in 2019.

After a series of alleged mistakes, no one reported her missing as of December 2021.

Police narrowed the time of her disappearance to November 28 to December 10, 2019, but the months-long search has so far been fruitless and frustrating.

That was until Tuesday, when there appeared to be an ominous breakthrough in the case.

Law enforcement at every level — local, state, and federal — swamped the Manchester, New Hampshire home that was once home to Harmony’s father, Adam Montgomery, and his now-estranged wife, Kayla.

The police were in front of the house for about 24 hours. FBI agents once wheeled a refrigerator in and out of the house and secured it with special packaging.

Blair Miller, who adopted Harmony’s younger brother Jamison, told The Sun this week: “We wanted answers and now we’re scared of them.”

That will likely take “a while, that is, weeks,” said Jennifer Coffinaffer, a retired FBI agent with nearly three decades of experience.

She told The Sun on Friday that she had never seen an entire fridge removed from a house. Parts of the closet were also removed.

“They think there’s biological evidence of Harmony in there,” Coffinaffer claimed. “Whether that’s a hair or something.

She also requested that a judge sign a warrant for the fridge, meaning there is new, confirmed information leading law enforcement to believe it is vital and needs to be tested in a lab.

The evidence will go from here to the FBI field office in Boston and then probably to the FBI lab at Quantico.

It could be weeks from there as a life is not in imminent danger according to Coffinaffer but will likely be high on the priority list due to intense media coverage.

“They’re looking for biological evidence or leads,” the retired FBI agent said.

For example, if there was a picture of her in a pink outfit, law enforcement could look for pink fibers in the hallway that could corroborate child molestation allegations against Adam.

“You’re building the case in its entirety,” Coffinaffer said. “You have to find out what happened to her. You’re building on building blocks.”

EXPECT THE WORST

Meanwhile, Jamison, who is just five years old, doesn’t know what’s going on and his adoptive fathers Blair and Johnathon Miller said they are preparing to speak to him once they have more information.

On Tuesday, “US Marshals and the Attorney’s Office are telling us to remain on standby and they will let us know as soon as possible, but prepare for the worst,” Blair said.

“We realize we need to have this conversation with him. We have tried to keep hope alive, but that hope is being taken away from us.”

ADAM’S ALLEGED ABUSE

Eight-year-old Harmony was last seen alive in October 2019; However, police were not aware of her disappearance until two years later.

According to records from the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families, Harmony was torn between her mother’s care and DCF for most of her young life.

The young girl was placed in the care of her father Adam in 2019 when she was around five years old.

Investigators have since narrowed the timeframe of Harmony’s disappearance to November 28 to December 10, 2019.

Adam, 31, is being held on second-degree assault charges over an alleged assault on Harmony in 2019.

However, he was not charged in the child’s disappearance.

The 31-year-old is also facing charges of violating custody and two administrative offenses for endangering the welfare of a child.

Adam’s brother Michael told police the 31-year-old physically abused Harmony and gave her a black eye.

A detective then spoke to Adam’s uncle Kevin and asked him about Harmony’s eye injury.

According to court documents, Kevin said Adam told him in July 2019 that he [Adam] “beat her up [Harmony] around the house.”

Adam was reportedly furious with Harmony – who was five at the time – for making her watch her little brother, but he started crying, which infuriated the dad.

The uncle also said Adam beat up his daughter, forced her to stand in the corner for hours and ordered her to scrub a toilet with her toothbrush.
