The FBI has announced it is no longer looking for a second Uzbek man in connection with the truck attack in New York that killed eight people.

As prosecutors charged Sayfullo Saipov with federal terrorism indictments, the FBI had announced they were seeking information about a 32-year-old man.

The bureau said it was seeking the public help’s in tracking down information about the man.

But at a press conference on Wednesday evening, officials said they were no longer seeking information about the man.
