She says there were no signs of foul play.

Timothy Cunningham, a 35-year-old Harvard-educated leader within the nation's health protection agency, was found dead late Tuesday night in the Chattahoochee River, which runs near his home, police said Thursday. Stafford said rescue crews had to use boats and special equipment to reach Cunningham's body because it was in hard terrain in a "remote area not easily accessible".

A medical examiner identified his remains and said the cause of death was drowning. "Since the investigation is ongoing, we do not have. whether it was an accident, a suicide, or anything other than that" Cunningham drowned, Gorniak said. Due to rough currents, it made it hard for fire officials to recover his body, which took several days to identify because it had been in the water for almost two months, Fulton County chief medical examiner Jan Gorniak said.

Cunningham, who police described as "an avid collector" of rare stones, had three crystals in his pocket and was found wearing his favorite jogging shoes, O'Connor said. According to the Atlanta Police Department, he had recently spoken to a supervisor about why he was passed over for a promotion. He did not elaborate.

Cunningham vanished February 12. after telling colleagues at CDC headquarters he was not feeling well. His family reported him missing on February 16 after going to his home and finding his belongings and vehicle there. The civilian group Crime Stoppers offered a reward of up to $15,000 for information pointing to any criminal activity. It's not clear where Cunningham entered the river, which had been previously searched, officials said.

The director of the CDC issued a statement last month denying that Cunningham had been denied a promotion, saying he had been promoted in July.
