Police interviewed Rep. Gary Condit for a second time Saturday in their search for a missing California woman he has described as a "good friend."

The hourlong meeting took place at an undisclosed location, said Terrance W. Gainer, Washington's executive assistant chief of police.

"The congressman was responsive to our inquiries," he said.

He added that police did not learn anything dramatic to help them in their search for Chandra Levy, 24, of Modesto, Calif.

Condit, D-Calif., was accompanied by his lawyer, Abbe Lowell, said a source familiar with the investigation.

Gainer said Condit is not a suspect in Levy's disappearance. But police wanted to talk to him again for any information he may have about Levy's habits or state of mind in the days before she disappeared.

Billy Martin, a lawyer for Levy's parents, Dr. Robert and Susan Levy, said Thursday that he hoped Condit would make clear the nature of his relationship with Levy. Mrs. Levy has said her daughter told her she was seeing Condit, who is married.

Chandra Levy was last seen April 30 in a Washington gym, a few days after she finished an internship with the federal Bureau of Prisons. She met Condit, whose district includes her Modesto home, last year in Washington through a friend who worked in the congressman's office.
