THE mother of a missing New Hampshire girl, Harmony Montgomery, has spoken for the first time since her disappearance two years ago.
The seven-year-old, who was not in the care of her biological mother Crystal Sorey, hasn't been seen since October 2019 when cops were called to a home in Manchester.
Her disappearance, however, wasn't reported until two years later – the last week of December 2021.
Ever since, Police have carried out a search for the young girl and this week raided a home where Harmony was last known to have lived.
The girl’s step-mom and father have this week faced separate charges in court, but so far nobody has been arrested in connection with her disappearance.
And on Saturday, speaking at a candlelight vigil attending by family and friends, Harmony’s mother Sory broke her silence on the case and issued a message to her daughter.
"Hi, baby. If you can see me and hear me, I want you to know that I never stopped looking for you and I won't stop fighting until I find you, okay,” she told NBC10Boston.
“You stay strong and mommy's right here fighting for you. I love you!"

Sorey said she last saw Harmon over Facetime around Easter 2019.
But after that, Harmony's father Adam Montgomery – who had legal custody – blocked all contact.
However, the heartbroken mother told the outlet that she had not given up on seeing her daughter again as she issued a desperate plea for answers.
"I don't feel like she's gone. I just don't feel that in my heart," Sorey said.
"Like, I don't feel like I lost her. And a mother knows, a mother knows if your baby's here or not. I know she's here."
She continued: "We just want her to know how much she's loved and we just want her to come home.”
"If you know anything about my baby, please, I'm begging you to come forward, so she can come home."
As the search continues, Harmony has been described as being 4 feet tall and weighing around 50 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes and wears glasses, and is blind in her right eye.
During a late Monday afternoon press conference, Manchester Police Chief Allen Aldenberg said detectives "are running on fumes but working around the clock" to find Harmony.
"I'm in rescue mode. We are not in a recovery operation," Aldenberg said.
"We're operating under the assumption she’s alive and well, and that's how we'll operate until someone convinces me otherwise."
During the press conference, the chief announced a 24-hour tipline and offered more than $10,000 in rewards for information. The tips hotline can be called or texted and will be manned 24/7: 603-203-6060.
'THAT'S MY HARMONY'
The young girl's little brother has also been searching for his missing sister in a park, the boy's adopted dads exclusively told The US Sun.
Harmony used to take care of her little brother, Jamison, as they bounced around the foster care system but were ultimately separated in 2019.
The seven-year-old was purportedly reunited with her biological father in February 2019, and Jamison was adopted by Blair and Johnathon Miller in November 2019.
Even at a young age, Jamison is very aware and keeps asking where's Harmony, Blair told The Sun.
The mysterious case of his sister captured national headlines and impacted the Miller's Washington DC home, messing with young Jamison's psyche.
"We try to shield him from the news, but he saw her picture on a flyer and said, 'That's my Harmony. We brought him to a park, and he was looking for her," Johnathon said.
The doting dads said they're doing everything they can to find Harmony for Jamison's sake.
Not having his big sister in his life has impacted Jamison's performance in school, where he's been acting out, his dads told The US Sun.
"Jamison is going through a lot of trauma. It hasn't been an easy road," Johnathon said.
"We're just trying to figure out where she is. Someone does know something. That person needs to come forward," Blair said.
"We don’t want to think of anything else," Johnathan said when asked if they think she's still alive.
