The attorney has been looking for the footage since an alleged suicide attempt by Epstein in the Metropolitan Correctional Center on 23 July.

Epstein died in his jail cell a month later.

Epstein's cellmate is an ex-police officer ,who is accused by federal prosecutors of four murders.

"We were told that it was not retained," one of the lawyers, Bruce Barket, said in an email to CNBC.

"Obviously if it was destroyed or lost, that is disturbing," Barket said. "We are waiting on an explanation before deciding how to proceed."

Epstein was arrested on 6 July and charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy to traffic minors for sex.

Prosecutors allege that he brought as many as 40 girls under 18 to his mansion for the purposes of sex.
