    Missing CDC employee left work sick 10 days ago, hasn't been seen since, police say

    Police are asking the public for help finding a missing Centers for Disease Control and Prevention employee who went home sick 10 days ago and hasn't been seen or heard from since.

    Timothy Cunningham, 35, went to work on Feb. 12 and left sick, the Atlanta Police Department said. Cunningham, who studied at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, works as an epidemic intelligence service officer and has been sent to respond to public health emergencies including the Ebola virus and the Zika virus, according to the CDC.


    MISSING: Atlanta police ask for help finding 35-year-old man

    The Atlanta Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance finding a missing 35-year-old man.

    Investigators said Timothy Jerrell Cunningham hasn’t been seen or heard from since he called in sick to work on Monday morning.

    Cunningham works at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

    His parents came from Maryland to help with the search. The went to his home, where the door was locked, but they had a spare key.

    They said they found his car, keys, wallet and phone at the home. They also said his dog was left alone, which is something Cunningham would never intentionally do.

    "It's not the type of news you want to hear. Your child is missing. Thirty-five years old, but always your child," father Terrell Cunningham said.

    Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or the Atlanta Police Homicide/Adult Missing Persons Unit at 404-546-4235.

    Centers for Disease Control employee vanishes after feeling sick and leaving work early
    Saturday, February 24, 2018, 11:59 AM

    Mystery still surrounds the disappearance of a Centers Disease Control and Prevention employee, who was last seen leaving work early nearly two weeks ago.
    His father, Terrell Cunningham, said he’d been in contact with his son “extensively” on Sunday, Feb. 11.

    “I pinpoint Sunday because there were some exchanges via phone as well as text that alerted me to be concerned about our son,” he said.

    I wonder if he drove to work on the 12th. If so, he obviously made it home since his car was there.
    Could he be in a hospital? Possibly unable to communicate?
    I hope he'll be found safe. :praying:

    “I pinpoint Sunday because there were some exchanges via phone as well as text that alerted me to be concerned about our son,” he said.

    Did he sound concerned for his own well being or did dad get concerned about him harming himself? or?

    Timothy Cunningham: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

    When Cunningham’s parents traveled from Maryland to search for him, they found strange clues in his home. His phone, wallet, credit card, and keys were locked inside his house on Harry Brooks Drive in the Riverside neighborhood of Altanta. (They were able to get in with a spare key.) His SUV was parked at his home. And his beloved dog was still inside his house, left all alone, WSB-TV reported. This was absolutely not in his character, his parents said, because he would never intentionally leave his dog Beau alone.

    Another strange thing they noticed was that two of the windows in his home were left open. This alarmed them, they told NBC, because it was very out of character. He was very environmentally conscious and wouldn’t have normally left those windows open, they believed.
    Cunningham’s sister typically stays in touch with him on a regular basis, 11 Alive reported. She spoke to him on Monday around 7 a.m., the day he disappeared, and may have been one of the last people to talk to him. His family had also talked to him a lot on Sunday, the day before he disappeared, his parents told NBC News. His father, Terrell, said something about those communications made him worried, but he didn’t elaborate. “I pinpoint Sunday because there were some exchanges via phone as well as text that alerted me to be concerned about our son.” Then when he didn’t return calls or texts, they got even more concerned.
    Family and friends searched parks, hospitals, and medical facilities with no news. His brother, Anterio, said he’s worried something bad might have happened to him. “My first mind is that something has happened especially considering the length of time he’s been gone. Not having his phone, leaving his dog Bo alone, he just wouldn’t voluntarily check out like that.”
    Friends said Cunningham is reliable, happy, and positive, NBC reported. He has a pristine record, one friend said, and is always available to meet friends for dinner or to help them move furniture — whatever they need. To help, his friends have raised more than $20,000 as a reward for information that leads to locating him.

    :( Not sounding good, but I hope he is safe.


    A CDC researcher left work sick two weeks ago — then vanished
    By Alex Horton February 25 at 4:28 PM

    She told the paper she speaks with her brother often, but their conversation Feb. 12 left her concerned. “He sounded not like himself,” she said. He did not reply to a text message she sent later, and their mother, Tia-Juana Cunningham, did not reach him either.

    Cunningham's father, Terrell Cunningham, and mother drove all night from their home in Waldorf, Md., to Atlanta, arriving on Valentine's Day. What they discovered in their son's home raised more questions, including Cunningham's unattended dog, Mr. Bojangles, and his wallet, cellphone and driver's license. His car was in the garage, the Times reported.

    Terrell Cunningham also had concerns about recent interactions with his son, whom he described as focused on a host of professional and personal issues.

    “The tone and the numerous exchanges gave us reason to be concerned about Tim,” he said. “And I don’t know if it’s an instinct you have because it’s your child, but it was not a normal conversation, and I was not comfortable.” The family did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    "It takes you to a place that the light is not shining in," Terrell Cunningham said. "I won't call it a dark place, but they are lows. This is extremely hard."

    The parents spoke Monday afternoon as the search for their son Dr. Timothy J. Cunningham, 35, entered a third week after he disappeared without a trace.

    Missing CDC doctor was passed up for promotion, police say
    By Wayne Drash

    The missing epidemiologist from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was informed why he didn't get a promotion shortly before he disappeared more than two weeks ago, police said Tuesday.

    Timothy J. Cunningham, 35, was last seen February 12 after leaving work early, saying he didn't feel well. Police have canvassed his neighborhood, nearby woods, a cemetery and other areas, finding no clues on his whereabouts. There have been no bank transactions in the weeks since, said Atlanta Police Maj. Michael O'Connor of the major crimes unit.

    "The most unusual factor in this case is that every single belonging that we are aware of was located in the residence," O'Connor said. "His keys, his cell phone, credit cards, debit cards, wallet, all of his identification. Anything you could think of, we've been able to locate. None of those items are missing."

    On the morning of the disappearance, he said, Cunningham was informed by his supervisor as to why he wasn't receiving a promotion at work. He had been told a week before that he was being passed over for the job.

    Colleagues told police that Cunningham was "obviously disappointed" by the news and that he left work shortly after, saying he didn't feel well, according to O'Connor.

    Passed over for a promotion. Called out sick. Concerning messages to his family.
    Sounds like he left on his own.
    I hope he just needs a break.

    Missing CDC scientist had meeting about being passed over for promotion before disappearance, police say

    A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention scientist had a meeting with his supervisor about a missed promotion on the day that he went missing, police say.

    Atlanta Police Major Michael O'Connor released new details of Tim Cunningham's disappearance in a news conference on Tuesday.

    According to O'Connor, Cunningham found out that he wasn't getting an expected promotion on Feb. 5 — one week before he vanished. Cunningham called out sick for work on Thursday and Friday of that week, and then returned to the CDC office in Chamblee, a suburb of Atlanta, on Monday, Feb. 12. That morning, he met with a supervisor who explained why he did not receive the promotion. Shortly after that, Cunningham said he felt sick and went home.

    On the way home, Cunningham tried to call his mother in Maryland. She missed the call, and Cunningham did not leave a voicemail, O'Connor said

    Cunningham hasn't been heard from since.

    The 35-year-old works as a commander in the U.S. Public Health Service. He holds two degrees from Harvard and he is also a graduate of Atlanta's Morehouse College. He was once named to the Atlanta Business Chronicle's "40 under 40" list and has reportedly responded to the Ebola virus and the Zika virus outbreaks.

    Police did confirm that Cunningham told a neighbor to tell his wife to erase his phone number from her phone on the day before he disappeared. O'Connor said they'd talked to that neighbor but offered no other details about what that exchange might have meant.

    O'Connor said that the CDC has been cooperating in the investigation.

    Friends and family have raised more than $22,000 as a reward to help find Cunningham. Atlanta CrimeStoppers have also offered a $10,000 reward.

    Anyone with information on the case is asked to call 911.

    5 things we know about missing CDC researcher Timothy Cunningham
    Alexis Stevens
    12:36 p.m Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018

    Here’s what we know so far:

    1. Cunningham was upset he hadn’t gotten a promotion. The goal-oriented Morehouse College and Harvard University graduate told family and friends he believed he had earned a promotion within the CDC’s chronic disease section, according to Atlanta police. On Feb. 5, Cunningham learned he had not gotten the new title.

    2. He called out of work ill for two days. Three days after being told he did not get the promotion, Cunningham missed two days of work, a Thursday and Friday, due to illness, the CDC told police.

    3. Cunningham returned to work Feb. 12. It was a Monday morning, and after arriving at the CDC, Cunningham’s supervisor spoke with him about why he had not gotten the promotion, according to police. Around 9 a.m., Cunningham tells colleagues he again isn’t feeling well and leaves work. He places a phone call to his mother in Maryland, but she misses the call.
    5. An intriguing tip.Before Cunningham’s disappearance, he told a neighbor to have his wife delete his number from her phone.

    Parents reveal chilling last text from top doctor who has vanished

    The parents of a missing US doctor have shared the last text message they received from their son before his disappearance.

    His mother said the last text she received from Timothy was while she was asleep at 5.21am on the day he was last seen.

    "Are you awake?" she said the text read.

    Ms Cunningham did not get a chance to respond to the message before her son vanished.

    When the parents arrived at Timothy's Atlanta home to look for him, they found his phone, keys, wallet, car and dog.
