    I’m very local, and this article posted by a friend on FB is the first I’m hearing of this!

    School teacher who self-quarantined at Connecticut home for three weeks vanishes after going for a walk in early May

    Only that one FB post by the WHPD. I’m a little confused, though, he was lsw a face covering and wind breaker, at 1am? And he was suffering COVID symptoms, but had been self-isolating. Why does a guy who was smart enough to self-isolate go out in the middle of the night? That part is very concerning to me.

    School teacher who self-quarantined at Connecticut home for three weeks vanishes after going for a walk in early May

    Nearly eight weeks have passed since a beloved Connecticut school teacher disappeared in the early morning hours of his 50th birthday on May 7, 2020, and family members are worried sick.


    Both Lori, and Bob Tavares, who is another of Gil’s cousins, told Dateline that the family was also concerned because Gil had been experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and had self-quarantined for three weeks prior to his disappearance.

    Gil’s cousins told Dateline they have no reason to believe that Gil would harm himself or that anyone would harm him. They added that he had spoken to his brother shortly before his disappearance and expressed how excited he was to visit him in New York when the pandemic ends.

    Gil Cunha was last seen in the early hours of his 50th birthday on May 7, at his family’s home in the West Shore neighborhood.

    Cunha’s father saw him watching TV between 12 a.m. and 2 a.m., but then his mother woke up to find him gone

    “If something happened to him because of the virus, or if he harmed himself, or even if someone did something to him, we would still find him. But he’s just gone without a trace,”
