Story of Happy Charles

Happy Charles, a mother and grandmother from the Lac La Range Indian Band in Northern Saskatchewan.

The last memory Charles’ daughter, Margaret Bird, had of her mother is hearing her say “I’ll try every day” – words that she holds dear to her heart and implements into her day-to-day actions as a way to honour her mother.

Bird recalls how her mother “touched [the hearts]” of “every person that she ever met…and she made everyone feel equal and loved.”

Happy Charles went missing on April 3, 2017 in Prince Albert, SK. She was 42 years old at the time.

Charles is described as 5’1” tall, with brown eyes, black hair and a scar on her left cheek. She has a rose tattoo on her left hand. She was last seen wearing a black leather jacket with a long black wool coat, light blue jeans, dark-framed glasses, white shoes, and a black baseball hat. She was carrying a large black backpack that was full, as well as a light coloured purse with long straps.

Happy is currently missing and her family will not give up until they can bring her home. If you have any information about the whereabouts of Happy Charles, please call the Prince Albert Police Service at 306-953-4248 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
