Timothy Cunningham's remains were found Tuesday evening by fishermen along the Chattahoochee River in a rural area that had been previously searched and is not easily accessible by foot, authorities said at a press conference.

The body of a researcher from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was pulled from a river in Atlanta, police said Thursday, almost two months after he mysteriously went missing.

A CDC researcher who went missing over seven weeks ago has been found dead in a Georgia river.

"Back on February 23, the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department did, in fact, search the Chattahoochee River from Marietta Boulevard going downstream to Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway which is close to where Mr. Cunningham's body was found", Stafford said.

He was last seen leaving work February 12 after telling colleagues he didn't feel well. Atlanta Police Department spokesman Carlos Campos made the announcement on Thursday.

Before Cunningham's sudden disappearance, investigators said the epidemiologist had learned he was being passed up for a promotion, but the CDC later said that wasn't the case.

The CDC's director in mid-March issued a statement denying that Cunningham hadn't gotten a promotion and noting that he'd been promoted in July.
