Family, friends launch search for missing CDC employee in Atlanta
A search party looking for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention employee who went missing three weeks ago was launched Saturday.
Family, friends, and police searched a wooded area near a CDC office in Atlanta in hopes of finding 35-year-old Timothy Cunningham, a trained Ivy League epidemiologist, according to WXIA-TV.
A K9 unit and professional rescue volunteers also went on the search, but there was no sign of Cunningham, who vanished on Feb. 12 after saying he wasn’t feeling well at work.
Atlanta police said last Tuesday they don’t believe foul play was involved. However, police revealed Cunningham was upset he didn’t get a job promotion he wanted before his mysterious disappearance.
His supervisor on Feb. 12 explained to him why he didn’t get the position, police said.
Crime Stoppers Atlanta is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.
