CDC Employee Vanishes, Spurs Nationwide Search

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention employee was last seen 11 days ago, when he left work early after complaining that he felt unwell, Atlanta police said Friday.


Timothy Cunningham, 35, works as a commander in the U.S. Public Health Service and has responded to the Ebola virus and the Zika virus outbreaks, the CDC said. He holds two degrees from Harvard.

Police are now conducting a search for Cunningham and have enlisted the help of his family, friends and the alumni network of his alma mater Morehouse College.

The search effort includes small and large groups organizing to canvas and flyer the local area, said close friend David Calloway. He spoke on behalf of the family and is helping lead the search. Social media, digital messaging services and Morehouse's alumni network have expanded that effort nationwide.


where's Bruce Willis when you need him. we'll need someone else to take the mission.

If Hillary Clinton was in office, the Conservatives would be saying Cunningham found something dirty about her and she had him whacked.

I have been following this story for a few days. It is a strange one. I suspect he had something going on in his personal life nobody knew about.

Rather odd?? So much effort to find one person??? People go missing all the time.

What they are not sayin is that some test tubes containing something very very bad are missing as well.

I am not sayin it's the Iranians... but it's the Iranians...

or Russians, or Syrians,or North Koreans, or Chinese, or Aliens.

It was the Chinese.

Anonymous sources say he was an escaped clone recaptured by a Chinese spy named Sum Ting Wong.

Yep, he has access to some really dangerous stuff. Say he had just one batch of small pox. No one has been inoculated for that disease for 40 years, unless you were deployed to Iraq. Smallpox is extremely contagious, is infectious about 24 hours after exposure, and has up to a 40% mortality among white people, Asians and Africans. It killed about 80 to 90% of the native people in the Americas. Those numbers reflect the original strain, who knows what a strain that has been weaponized could do. The sad thing is, small pox is not the most dangerous pathogen we have at the CDC. Potentially one bug could do more damage than a nuclear war.

An employee at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who has been missing for almost two weeks may have made a strange comment just before his disappearance. Timothy Cunningham's next-door neighbor said he told her husband something odd that very day.

"He told my husband to tell his wife -- me -- to erase his cellphone number from my cellphone," Viviana Tory told CBS News.

Could be something, could be nothing..

Could be a simple explain: depression over being passed over for promotion(?):

On the morning of the disappearance, he said, Cunningham was informed by his supervisor as to why he wasn't receiving a promotion at work. He had been told a week before that he was being passed over for the job.

Colleagues told police that Cunningham was "obviously disappointed" by the news and that he left work shortly after, saying he didn't feel well, according to O'Connor.

Also: he didn't work in infectious diseases at the CDC, so wouldn't have access to any sensitive data or live material to make him a target.
