Okay JBFan, then can you offer more insight based in the additional two pictures of inside the box? Do I have the extra wire I need?

Man, some painters should be shot. Is there any way that you can clean up the paint off of the wiring, so that the colors of the jackets are better seen. You should be able to wipe with rubbing alcohol after you shut power off to that circuit, or just rub with a old wash cloth, and the paint should somewhat come off. For the ground, you may have to scrape a little with a razor blade, or edge of a screwdriver.

Where is the missing switch that other black wire went to?
