SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – FBI employees have told a federal judge that they thoroughly searched agency archives and found no evidence that more videos of the Oklahoma City bombing exist.

A federal judge in Salt Lake City heard the testimony Monday in the first day of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by attorney Jesse Trentadue.

He says the FBI won’t release videos that show a second person was with Timothy McVeigh when he parked a truck outside the Oklahoma City federal building and detonated a bomb that killed 168 people.

The government says McVeigh was alone.

Longtime FBI employee Linda Vernon testified she is "completely confident" the agency has found every video of the bombing that exists.

The trial continues Tuesday and will run at least through Wednesday before the judge makes a ruling.
