Schoolgirl, 7, not seen for over two years was only reported missing last week

A seven-year-old schoolgirl who has not been seen for over two years was only reported as missing last week.

Harmony Montgomery was last seen in October 2019 when police visited her family home in Manchester in New Hampshire, US.

At a press conference on December 31, Police Chief Allen Aldenberg revealed that authorities had only just been made aware of her disappearance.

He said: "For us to have a two-year delay, that is extremely concerning.

"That's not something that happens to us on a regular basis. It doesn't happen every day."

It is currently unclear whether Harmony's parents have been interviewed by cops, but Aldenberg did say that "many family members" had been spoken to as part of the ongoing investigation.

He also begged the local community for help in the "very active investigation" and insisted that "all available resources" are being deployed in the search for Harmony.

The young girl was described as being blonde with blue eyes, around 4ft tall, and weighing around 50lbs.

She also wears glasses and, according to WBZ News Radio, is blind in her right eye.

Aldenberg added that an 'Amber Alert' has not been issued as there is no specific threat or information linked to her going missing.

He concluded the press conference by saying: "I don't care if you saw this young girl a year ago and you think it's irrelevant, call us."

At a subsequent media appearance on Monday, the Police Chief announced that a $12,250 (£9,094) reward is being offered for any information leading to Harmony's discovery.

He has also urged people not to speculate about the case online.

He said: "We ask people not to play detective, not to play police officer.

"That is our job."
