A missing female, who grew up in Lutsel K’e on the east arm of Great Slave Lake, is being featured today on Canada’s Missing Children website.

Charlene was last seen hitchhiking from Behchoko to Yellowknife on the highway.

Northwest Territories RCMP have now created a Crime Stoppers video on her disappearance using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) – otherwise known as drones – to film part of the reconstruction of Charlene’s disappearance.

The 1 minute and 9 second video has been uploaded to YouTube by NWT Crime Stoppers and is available through a search of Charlene Catholique Disappearance.

Saturday is National Missing Children’s Day, a day to commemorate missing children who have been found, remember those who are still missing, and continue efforts to bring the missing home.

To honour the day, RCMP launched a week-long campaign, which started May 20.

Each day, different missing children are featured on Canada’s Missing website.

Charlene is featured on Friday May 24.
