No evidence of foul play in CDC doctor's disappearance

A $10,000 reward had been offered for information by Atlanta police, who said they didn't suspect foul play. "They're not certain that they have cameras that cover the parking deck but they're checking that for us again now", said O'Connor. He had previously been deployed for health emergencies such as outbreaks of Ebola or Zika virus.

They said he called his mother, who missed the call, and didn't leave a voicemail.

Timothy Cunningham's father, Terrell Cunningham, said that his son's supervisor said the younger Cunningham reported for work on February 12, but left midday because he wasn't feeling well, according to the Times. Cunningham is a commander at the CDC and was once named to the Atlanta Business Chronicle's 40 under 40.

Despite a lack of evidence suggesting Cunningham was the victim of a crime, the Crime Stoppers of Greater Atlanta issued a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and indictment in Cunningham's disappearance.

She and Cunningham's father, Terrell Cunningham, drove all night from their home in Waldorf, Maryland, to Atlanta, about 1000km away, arriving on Valentine's Day. "Everything seemed to be going very, very well for him - and then for him to disappear, it just doesn't add up", she said. He holds two degrees from Harvard, and he is also a graduate of Morehouse College.

Addressing conspiracy theories that have circulated since his disappearance, investigators said Cunningham did not work in the infectious disease unit at the CDC.

"He sounded not like himself", recollected Cunningham's younger sister, who had talked to him over the phone before he went missing. They said it's unusual for him not to contact them. Terrell told the Times, "The tone and the numerous exchanges gave us reason to be concerned for Tim, 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". "Are you awake?" her son asked. "He's worked hard to get where he is", Cunningham's brother, Anterio, said. Upon their arrival, his parents found the house and the garage were locked and two windows were open, according to the Times. Cunningham's dog, Mr. Bojangles, was also in the home left unattended, and his vehicle was parked in the garage. "I tell you all that to really understand the relationship of Tim and Bo", the father said.

Atlanta Police provided an update on the investigation into Timothy Cunningham's disappearance, Tuesday afternoon.
