Among the hundreds of cameras and phones found on the island outside Oslo where a Norwegian man has confessed to killing 69 people could be one belonging to the admitted killer.

British news channel Sky News reported Wednesday that Anders Behring Breivik could have filmed his July 22 rampage on Utoya island, where the government's ruling party holds an annual youth camp. Breivik has confessed to killing the 77 victims in his coordinated bomb attack in Oslo and shooting on the island.

"We have information from his manifesto and from earlier interrogations indicating that he did have a camera," prosecutor Christian Hatlo said, according to Sky. "We are looking for his camera but have not found anything so far."

Police have already found hundreds of cameras, computers and phones on the island where more than 600 people attended the camp, according to Sky. The news channel also reported that Breivik referenced wanting to film his shooting spree and then send the footage to as many as a dozen news outlets.

"Unfortunately, the upload and submission via e-mail could take at least three to seven hours," Sky quoted his manifesto, "so it is not an option because of technological limitations."

Hatlo told The Associated Press Wednesday that police have interrogated Breivik for 40 hours and are becoming more confident that he acted alone and that he hasn't told "any direct lie, yet."
