- Atlanta Police have confirmed a body found in the Chattahoochee River in northwest Atlanta has been identified as a missing Centers for Disease Control and Prevention worker.

The body of Timothy Cunningham, 35, was found Tuesday night along the bank of the Chattahoochee River, according to the Atlanta Police Department, after people fishing saw a body and called 911.

The area - not far from Cunningham's home - was inaccessible by walking, police said, and they struggled to find a place to launch a boat to reach his remains. The preliminary cause of death is drowning.

"He has this pristine service record and background, and then he's also the guy you can call to help you move furniture or get together with you at a restaurant at the end of a long day", close friend David Calloway told NBC News almost 12 days after Cunningham's disappearance.

The muddy river spot where the officer was found wasn't too far from his house, but there weren't any roads or running trails nearby, so it's not clear exactly how Cunningham got in there.

Timothy Cunningham was reported missing on February 12 after leaving his job early.

There were no signs of foul play in the death of a US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention epidemiologist who likely drowned, officials said Thursday.

After Cunningham's disappearance, police offered $10,000 as a reward for any clues regarding Cunningham's whereabouts. He had also called in sick February 8 and 9, the two previous workdays, O'Connor said. "His keys, his cellphone, credit cards, debit cards, wallet, all of his identification, passports. None of those items are missing", O'Connor said.

The manner of death has not been determined at this time, the medical examiner said.

Cunningham's parents were notified by police about four bodies found as part of the search, only to be told later that none of them was of their son.

Earlier that morning, at 5:21 a.m., Cunningham's mother had received a text message from him, she has said. His work as a Public Health Service commander including responding to public health emergencies such as the Ebola virus and Zika virus.

By outward appearances, Cunningham seemed to have a successful career. Timothy's family stated that he had a conversation with them the day before he vanished, that had left them concerned.

Cunningham's father told The New York Times in February that he'd been anxious about his son recently because he didn't seem like his usual self in conversation.
