CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire authorities say the father of a young girl who was last seen in 2019, but not reporting missing until last week, has been arrested on second-degree assault, custody and child endangerment charges regarding his daughter who remains unaccounted for.

Thirty-one-year-old Adam Montgomery, of Manchester, was arrested on a warrant Tuesday and faced arraignment Wednesday on the charges stemming from 2019.

His arrest came a day after Manchester police set up a tip line and offered cash rewards as they investigate the disappearance of Harmony Montgomery.

She was last seen at a Manchester home in October 2019, when she was 5, but police only learned about that last week.
