Police: CDC worker missing since Feb. 12
Police said a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention researcher who’s been missing for two weeks was disappointed about being passed over for a promotion.
Local media reported that Atlanta police Major Michael O’Connor said Tuesday that 35-year-old Timothy Cunningham told co-workers he was expecting the promotion. Cunningham is an epidemiologist at the Atlanta-based CDC.
Police said Cunningham reported to work Feb. 12 but told colleagues he didn’t feel well and left early. Cunningham’s parents hadn’t heard from him and reported him missing on Feb. 16 after they went to his home and found his belongings and vehicle there.
O’Connor said there’s no evidence of foul play but that it can’t be ruled out. Therefore a $10,000 reward has been offered if information leads to an arrest and indictment in the case.
