Three low-fidelity photos of an unidentified individual could hold clues in the disappearance of Happy Charles.

On Thursday, Prince Albert Police Service released the images and asked anyone with information about the person to contact investigators.

Charles was 42-years-old when she went missing more than two years ago. At the time of her disappearance, she had five children and two grandchildren.

She reportedly left her home in La Ronge to go to Prince Albert on April 1, 2017. ​She reportedly messaged her mom and told her she was at the Prince Albert Inn during the evening of April 2, 2017.

Video footage shows Charles at Walmart in the city with her boyfriend the next day. She was last seen the same day walking alone by Kinsmen Park and Central Avenue just before midnight, according to Prince Albert Police Service. 

Police said the newly released photos are enhanced screen captures from surveillance video shot at the high school near where Charles was last seen. The video was captured around that same time. 

Charles has a rose tattoo on her left hand and a scar on her left cheek. Police said she stands five feet one inches tall, weighs about 115 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.
