Looking for siblings of my sister

CHERYL LEIGH (OR LEE), RED DEER,AB 1981-1983 approximately. Brenda and Gordon Cooper. I am looking for my sister's half-sister who moved away at about 2-3 years of age.

We have a small picture of her as a small girl with blonde hair. I would love to hear from anyone who could give us information. Thank you.
