Debra Chartier hopes 51 more anthropologists hired to search Robert Pickton's pig farm will help find her mother Janet Henry.

"I'm glad that the police aren't giving up, and are searching this place so thoroughly, because I still hope that one day they'll have news about my mom," said Chartier, as she watched seven conveyor belts at work on the Port Coquitlam farm.

Police said yesterday they are doubling the number of anthropology specialists to a total of 103, to sift soil from the farm. About 25 of the new specialists started work this month and the rest will begin in early May, in addition to the 52 scientists who have searched the property since last June.

For Chartier, an 18-year-old Prince George criminology student, it was an emotional day, seeing for the first time the pig farm and Pickton himself. He appeared in court at a preliminary hearing to face 15 first-degree murder charges of women who have disappeared from the Downtown Eastside. Chartier's mom, Janet Henry, who disappeared in 1997, is one of 61 women on the list of missing.

Police have found the remains of 22 women at the farm.

Pickton's preliminary hearing is expected to continue until early May.
