A Centre for Disease Control official (CDC), Timothy J. Cunningham, has left his family and everyone else on edge after he disappeared and has not been seen since the 12th of February.
Cunningham said he was not feeling well before he left the office on the fateful day. He has not been seen since.
Cunningham has two degrees from Harvard and worked on the government’s response to the Zika and Ebola crises.
He had recently been promoted to the rank of commander, and was one of The Atlanta Business Chronicle’s ‘40 Under 40 Award’ winners.
His family is understandably worried as they describe him as someone who would always answer calls and texts — something he has not been doing.
They drove to his house in Maryland to find his home empty with everything intact including his dog, Bojangles, aka Beau, but Cunningham was nowhere to be found.
“None of this makes sense,” Timothy’s brother Anterio told WAGA-TV, a Fox affiliate in Atlanta.
“He wouldn’t just evaporate like this and leave his dog alone and have our mother wondering and worrying like this. He wouldn’t.”
“I feel like I’m in a horrible Black Mirror episode,” his sister Tiara told the New York Times.
“Tim never leaves Beau unattended,” the missing man’s father, Terrell Cunningham told NBC News. “He just doesn’t do it.”
A total of $20,000 has been raised in an effort to get any information about Cunningham.
