Police said a body discovered Tuesday in the Chattahoochee River has been identified as Timothy Cunningham, the missing employee from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the body recovered in the Chattahoochee River in NW Atlanta late Tuesday to be missing CDC employee Timothy Cunningham", the Atlanta Police Department tweeted on Thursday. The manner of death has not yet been determined, but officials say there were no signs of foul play.

"It's not the type of news you want to hear", Terrell Cunningham, the 35-year-old's father had said.

"We have no indication of foul play", Major Michael O'Connor with the Atlanta Police Department said at a press conference Thursday.

The New York Times reports his family said their last phone conversations with Cunningham had left them anxious and "he sounded not like himself". O'Connor said the department's missing person investigation could come to a close in the next few weeks.

Police had previously located Cunningham's keys, cellphone, credit cards, debit cards, wallet and passports.

The Times reports Cunningham was promoted in July to commander in the uniformed United States Public Health Service.

About a week before his disappearance, Cunningham was told by his CDC supervisor that he would not get a promotion; an explanation was given to him on February 12 - the Monday he went missing.

He was also well regarded in the community, where he earned the Outstanding Atlanta award in 2014 in recognition of his "service, leadership and achievements of Atlanta young professionals" and named to the Atlanta Business Chronicle's 40 under 40 a year ago.

The agency said he'd been deployed to work on numerous public-health emergencies, including Superstorm Sandy, the Ebola outbreak, and the Zika outbreak.

The CDC said in a statement sent to CNN that Cunningham's "colleagues and friends at CDC are deeply saddened to learn of his death". "I can't tell you that he was jogging but those things together seem to indicate that that is a possibility".

Family members expressed grave concern after several days passed without anyone being able to reach Cunningham. The dog, known as Bo, had twice accompanied Cunningham to Harvard, where he earned his master's and doctoral degrees.
