Missing CDC Employee Timothy Cunningham's Body Found by Atlanta River, Police Say

A U.S. Centers for Disease Control scientist has been found dead almost two months after he went missing, authorities said Thursday.

"The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the body recovered in the Chattahoochee River in NW Atlanta late Tuesday to be missing CDC employee Timothy Cunningham", the Atlanta Police Department tweeted on Thursday.

The circumstances of Cunningham's death remain unclear, but the police previously said they didn't suspect foul play in the case.

Timothy Cunningham, 25, an epidemiologist at the CDC, was found in Chattahoochee River late Tuesday after he went missing on February 12, Atlanta Police Department spokesman Carlos Campos announced Thursday. Michael O'Connor of the Atlanta Police Department said in February that Cunningham had recently been turned down for a promotion at work and left feeling ill shortly after his supervisor explained why he'd been passed over. Atlanta police confirm that a body pulled from the Chattahoochee River on April 3 was the missing scientist.

After Cunningham didn't answer calls or text, family members became concerned and had someone check his home.

He was reportedly working as a commander in the U.S. Public Health Service and had responded to the Ebola and Zika virus outbreaks. Tim was a treasured member of the CDC family and his work as an epidemiologist was invaluable to CDC's efforts to protect the health, safety, and security of Americans.

Cunningham's parents drove overnight from Maryland to Atlanta.

When they arrived at their son's house after he went missing, the parents said, they felt something was wrong because he had left his Tibetan spaniel unattended. He earned a spot past year in the Atlanta Business Chronicle's 40 Under 40 list, a who's who of the city's young standouts.

Cunningham's father told The New York Times that he'd been anxious about his son recently because he didn't seem like his usual self in conversation. Friends say he is smart and caring, a man with a big grin who liked doling out big hugs to match his smile. "I won't call it a dark place, but they are lows". The dog, officially named Mister Bojangles Cunningham but known as Bo, had twice accompanied Cunningham to Harvard, where he went for his master's and doctoral degrees. "We just don't have those answers at this time".
