Body of missing CDC worker found; no signs of foul play

No further details on where his body was found or how he died have been released.

Fulton County Chief Medical Examiner Jan Gorniak determined the cause of death.

People fishing in the water saw the body and notified the authorities, police said.

Timothy Cunningham is seen in a photo provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

Police say they do not suspect any foul play, but have not ruled it out.

Maj. O'Connor said he was wearing his favorite jogging shoes at the time he was found and three crystals were in his pocket.

Police in Atlanta, Georgia, said a CDC epidemiologist who mysteriously vanished earlier this month was passed over for a promotion shortly before his disappearance. "In fact, he received an early promotion/exceptional proficiency promotion to Commander effective July 1, 2017, in recognition of his exemplary performance in the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS)", the CDC said in a March 12 statement.

His parents said they later discovered his phone, wallet and auto keys as well as his dog - which had been left unattended - at his Atlanta home.

When they arrived at his house a few days later, Cunningham's parents said, they knew something was wrong because his Tibetan spaniel was unattended. Police say they'd conducted a "very thorough" search of the riverbanks in that area on February 23, but didn't find any signs of the missing commander.

The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention is discounting information that police released regarding missing employee Timothy Cunningham as erroneous.

Co-workers told authorities that Cunningham had been "obviously disappointed" on the morning of February 12, when he learned why he wasn't getting the promotion he'd hoped for, police have said. His sister, Tiara Cunningham, the last family member who spoke with Cunningham before he disappeared, said she felt lost without her brother. He was once named to the Atlanta Business Chronicle's "40 under 40" list. Cunningham has also been deployed to help during public health emergencies, including Superstorm Sandy and the Ebola and Zika viruses, his biography says. He held two degrees from Harvard, and was a graduate of Morehouse College.
