CDC official who handled Zika and Ebola outbreaks mysteriously missing”

Cunningham's family is pleading for the public's help.

The disappearance has prompted a high-profile police search and a $10,000 reward for material information in the case.

No one knows where commander Timothy Cunningham has gone.

"This is an extremely unusual set of circumstances", O'Connor said, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Police are not ruling out the idea that Cunningham may still be alive.

Investigators returned to the woods around Cunningham's house Monday searching for more clues. But they've found no trace of Cunningham.

Tim Cunningham disappeared on February 12 after leaving work early at the CDC office in Chamblee. Cunningham drove off from work, and was never seen again.

There have been no bank transactions in the weeks since, said Atlanta Police Maj. His parents found his auto, keys, wallet, phone and dog where he left them at his Atlanta home. "This is definitely out of the ordinary", his father Terrell Cunningham told the media. "He just doesn't do it". Timothy Cunningham (age 35) of the U.S. Public Health Service (which is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), was last seen on February 12, the day he spoke to his sister, Tiara Cunningham.

Before 7:30 a.m.: Cunningham meets with his supervisor at the CDC Chamblee office, who explains to him why he will not be receiving a promotion. He worked on public health emergencies including Superstorm Sandy, the Ebola outbreak and the Zika virus.

According to news reports, Cmdr.

The parents said they had a worrisome phone call with their son and exchange of texts the evening of February 11. His sister, Tiara Cunningham, the last person to speak with Cunningham before he disappeared, said she felt lost without her brother.

She also added that her last conversation with him on December 12 left her anxious because he did not sound like himself.

Friends are anxious, too, and find the disappearance troublingly out of character.

"I found Timmy's phone and then I said, 'That's why he's not responding to the calls because his phone is still here in his home, '" his mother said. "We just want you back in our arms". "We love and miss you".

Cunningham's father, Terrell, also added that his recent conversations with his son were concerning, and he seemed to have a lot of personal and professional issues.
