VANCOUVER (CP) -- Police investigating the disappearance and murders of women from Vancouver's Downtown East Side have wrapped up a search of a property in Mission, east of Vancouver.

The search began July 20 but police have never said what they were looking for or if they found anything.

The joint RCMP-Vancouver police task force looking into the case said Friday its people and equipment would be off the site by the end of the day.

The land, adjacent to a highway about 60 kilometres east of Vancouver, belongs to a local First Nation.

Police continue their search of the suburban Port Coquitlam farm of Robert Pickton, where human remains were found. The task force said Friday the search, which began in February 2002, is expected to continue into the early fall.

Pickton is charged with murdering 15 of the missing woman in what has become Canada's worst serial killer case.

Last month, he was committed to stand trial in the killings.
