Timothy Cunningham, a doctor and scientist with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, seems to have vanished without a trace.

The Morehouse & Harvard graduate, described as a highly-respected epidemiologist for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hasn’t been seen or heard from since Feb. 12 when he reportedly left work early because he wasn’t feeling well.

The family of the 35-year-old doctor has offered a $10,000 reward to anyone who is aware of his whereabouts, according to Atlanta’s Fox 5 News.

Anterio Cunningham, the missing doctor’s brother, stated the he fears something has happened to Timothy and that his brother’s disappearance is eerie, when interviewed by the local news station. “My first mind is that something has happened — especially considering the length of time he’s been gone… Not having his phone, leaving his dog Bo alone, he just wouldn’t voluntarily check out like that,” he stated.

To make his disappearance even more bizarre, he told neighbor Viviana Tory’s husband to tell her “to erase his cellphone number from my cellphone,” Tory told CBS.

“The most unusual factor in this case is that every single belonging that we are aware of was located in the residence,” Atlanta Police Maj. Michael O’Connor of the major crimes unit, told CNN. “His keys, his cell phone, credit cards, debit cards, wallet, all of his identification. Anything you could think of, we’ve been able to locate. None of those items are missing.”

Rumors are swirling that Dr. Cunningham speaking about flu shots being the cause of deadly outbreaks of influenza may be the cause of his disappearance.
