The Justice Department will use "every option available" to track down more than 50,000 missing text messages that were sent between FBI investigator Peter Strzok and agency attorney Lisa Page, DOJ Public Affairs Director Sarah Flores said Wednesday.

"We'll use every option available to find the text messages through other forms, whether it is old phones, whether it is going to some of these technology companies that were involved and seeing if they have them," Flores told Fox News' "Fox and Friends."

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has said the DOJ will "leave no stone unturned" when trying to find the messages, Flores said, and "we're reviewing immediately how they didn't get into the server in the first place."

Meanwhile, Flores confirmed that Sessions spoke with special counsel Robert Mueller's and his investigators last week and was there for a few hours before returning to work "to get back to the work of this president, reducing crime, taking on sanctuary cities, taking on the opioid epidemic."

Flores said she wouldn't comment on why Sessions was questioned, as she wouldn't "step on the special counsel's investigation while it is ongoing," but insisted Sessions was "happy to speak with him about anything they asked."

"Don't forget the attorney general, we counted 25 hours of open testimony on Congress last year," Flores said. "He has said a lot about these topics. Not shy to share."

Meanwhile, Strzok and Page are still working for the FBI because the investigation into their alleged actions is continuing.

"We hope that wraps up soon and expect that we'll have a determination by the inspector general of whether there was wrongdoing," she said, adding that the DOJ has "every confidence" in FBI Director Wray and in the fact that the couple no longer work on Muller's investigation.
