Calgary Police has shared details of three cold cases, and they're asking for help from the public to get more information in order to solve them.

Police shared details of three cases – two homicides and a missing person – that have yet to be solved, the earliest case dating back to 2009.

Staff Sergeant Sean Gregson said, "these investigations will not be closed until they are solved."

"We know it has been tremendously difficult for the families of these victims who have continued to search for answers, and we’re asking anyone with information, big or small, to come forward," he added.

Anyone with information on any of the cases can contact Calgary Police, or tips can be left anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
