After a federal judge directed Trump's attorneys to look for any classified material still in his possession.
They found the documents at a storage site in West Palm Beach, Florida, one of four properties searched, the person said.
Trump is being investigated by the Justice Department as to whether he broke the law by retaining U.S. government records, some marked top secret, after leaving office.
Trump, who launched his 2024 presidential bid last month, has denied wrongdoing and has said without providing evidence that the investigation is a partisan attack.
The searches were reported earlier by the Washington Post and CNN.
FBI agents seized thousands of documents, about 100 of which were marked classified, during a court-approved August 8 search of his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach.
Prosecutors are also looking into whether Trump or his team obstructed justice when the FBI sent agents to search his home. Officials have said more classified documents may still be missing.
Trump has faced a series of legal setbacks over the past week, including a Tuesday verdict that his company was guilty of tax fraud.
