Russell "Monty" Montgomery is the technical analyst for the FBI's International Response Team (IRT), which appears in Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders. He and the rest of the team appeared in the Season Ten episode of Criminal Minds, "Beyond Borders".
Little is known about Monty, other than he got a job with the FBI as a technical analyst. Through this job, he shares a personal history with Garcia, who is a good friend of his. The exact nature of their friendship, or the cause of it, is currently unknown. Monty was assigned under Jack Garrett and his International Unit, which specializes in helping Americans abroad. Much like Garcia, he upheld a positive attitude, though he shows it in a different way. In addition to his job as a technical analyst, he liaises with victims' relatives who are still on the American homeland while the rest of his group is away.
Monty reunites with Garcia and is paired up in the investigation. The two interrogate the Sullivan grandparents, and during the interrogation, Monty gives them some comfort, and when they said that Greg, the father, would not let anyone hurt his family without a fight, Monty compliments the attitude. After the interrogation, Garcia discusses with Monty what he said, and he replies that the relatives need to feel hopeful. During the investigation, Monty and Garcia examine the airport security footage to see how the unsub is able to target and abduct his victims. Later, after a list of suspects is narrowed down to a man named Jerry Tidwell, they look up more information on him. After the case is solved, Monty, along with the other members of the two teams, watch as the Sullivans are reunited with their relatives.
