Matthew 28:8: So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.

Mark 16:8: So they went out quickly and fled from the tomb, for they trembled and were amazed. And they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
Luke 24:9: Then they returned from the tomb and told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.
John 20:8-11: Then the other disciple, who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw and believed. For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead. Then the disciples went away again to their own homes. But Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb.

Matthew says that the visitors to the tomb immediately told the apostles, but Mark says that the visitors to the tomb told no one, Luke says that the visitors to the tomb told the apostles and others, and John says that the visitors to the tomb didn't immediately tell the apostles.

Contradictions:
1. Visitors immediately told the apostles != Visitors told no one.
2. Visitors immediately told the apostles != Visitors told the apostles and others.
3. Visitors immediately told the apostles != Visitors didn't immediately tell the apostles.

(Solving: 2)

Matthew only mentioning their telling the apostles doesn't exclude there being more.
