Adam and Kayla Montgomery Seen With Kids Except for Harmony

Several witnesses have reported seeing Adam and Kayla Montgomery living out of their cars possibly in Manchester's North End, with only their two children between Dec. 6 and Dec. 10. One of the cars was a dark blue 2006 Audi S4 and the other a silver 2010 Chrysler Sebring with a license plate askew.
