Police still following leads in 'unusual' disappearance of CDC employee

An employee at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who has been missing for nearly two weeks may have made a unusual comment just before his disappearance.

The New York Times reports that Cunningham's sister, Tiara Cunningham, said her brother sounded "not like himself" in a phone call on the day he left work sick, while Timothy's father said he felt uncomfortable after his last conversation with him as well, noting a "tone" that left him "concerned about Tim".

Cunningham, a graduate of of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, was recently promoted to commander in the Public Health Service, and was responsible for responding to and supervising public health emergencies including the Ebola virus and the Zika virus.

"As a parent, you have indicators when things are just not right with your child, and that was the case". She texted him later on that day, but she never received a reply.

When she texted her brother later, she didn't get a response. Left behind were Cunningham's unattended dog, Mr Bojangles, and his wallet, cellphone and driver's license.

He loves the dog so much, his parents said, he'd drive the 130 miles to Tuskegee, Alabama, to have the pooch's teeth cleaned.

Both parents said they've been sustained by the outpouring of support from strangers and friends alike - and that their faith has helped them get through these hard two weeks. What would you have me to learn?' " his father said.
