    It appears that he made it home, but it is not necessarily confirmed. There are cases where the victim's car was returned to their home by a perp. Two cases I can think of off the top of my head where that happened are Dani Stislicki and Zuzu Verk.

    https://www.websleuths.com/forums/s...X-Zuzu-Verk-22-Alpine-12-Oct-2016-3-*Arrests*

    Although neither of those cases have much in common with Tim, IF he was the victim of a crime, someone might have returned his car and possessions to his house. Tim might have gone to meet someone after leaving work or a perp might have been hiding in or near his car*. If he never came home, that would explain why dogs did not pick up his scent outside his house.

    *I'm not sure how likely this is at that CDC, but since LE stated are not sure it was Tim driving his car out of the lot it seems like they have left the door open for this possibility. JMO.

    A few thoughts:

    Has it been confirmed the time he contacted his mom? I've seen 5:21 and 9:21. I also read here that he clocked out of the CDC at 9:12. Can anyone confirm these times? It would help to know if the "Are you awake" text came before or after the meeting. If before, he was possibly contemplating his action before the meeting. If after, it could have been the meeting that set him off.

    Also, does anyone know if his backyard is fenced? Unless it is and he let the dog into the back daily, I find it odd the scent dogs were unable to pick up scent away from his house. Did he never walk the dog? Did he tell the neighbor to delete his number by yelling from his driveway? Or maybe the scents were washed away in the rain?

    Was it ever confirmed if it was by text, or if he talked to the neighbor in person?

    I read somewhere in this thread that he Tim was seen in the Bolton road area on that last day. Has a time been released for that sighting? Just curious if maybe he went home, went for a run leaving his things home, and sighted in that area. Maybe he possibly met with fouls play on his way back home?

    His hat is part of his uniform.

    They were checking to see if the work credit/debit card had been used. I think LE or CDC has it but they had to check with the bank to see if he bought any tickets for travel on it.

    If he walked onto campus (ie got dropped off), he would have scanned his badge at a different entrance location & LE would know that from talking to CDC.

    I know his hat is apart of his uniform. I brought it up because being a man, i think if he drove his car, he may have taken it off and left it in his car or even on the counter etc. There is no mention of his uniform being found at home. I think what it is worth noting is that everything pertaining to work was not found at the home.

    Hello There, I know you have alot of info on the CDC. Is it possible to enter the building without your card. For example, can you badge someone else in or out. Im asking because my job has a badge in or out system. Today at work a fellow co-worker needed to gain entry to the office, he didnt have his badge. I badged him in, even though I wasnt in the office. To enter the CDC is it as simple as badging and the door opens or does someone check ur badge?

    Forgive me if this has been answered, but has there been any info released on phone pings? Either his personal or work phone?

    There was footage of the neighbour saying it was in person, so that's probably more reliable than the newspaper article that stated it was by text.

    Here is a timeline 11alive.com has put together:

    “Feb. 5, 2018: Tim Cunningham finds out that he will not be promoted to branch manager at the CDC.

    Feb, 8 and Feb. 9: Cunningham calls out sick for work

    [In a different article, the neighbor is quoted as saying the following exchange took place on Sat., Feb. 10th]:

    Feb. 11: Cunningham tells a neighbor to tell his wife to delete his (Cunningham's) phone number from her cell phone.

    Feb. 12:
    Before 7:30 a.m.: Cunningham meets with his supervisor at the CDC Chamblee office, who explains to him why he will not be receiving a promotion.

    7:30 a.m.: Cunningham tells co-workers he is feeling sick and will finish his work at home.

    9:12 a.m.: Cunningham call his mother. She does not answer and Cunningham does not leave a voicemail.

    [I believe the following section contains an error: According to other reports, the relative did not enter the home; they only observed it appeared empty and that there were two windows that were left open. It was actually Tim’s parents who went inside using a spare key and found his various belongings there]:

    Date/time unknown: After not hearing from their son, Cunningham's parents ask a family member to use a spare key to check on him at his house. The relative reports back that Cunningham was not home, but his cell phone and car keys were in the house.

    Feb. 14:

    7:30 a.m.: Cunningham's parents arrive at his Atlanta home after driving through the night from Maryland. They find the home empty, with two windows -- one in a bathroom and one in a laundry room -- open. Cunningham's dog, Beau, is at the house.

    9:30 a.m.: Cunningham's parents report him missing.“

    Also, here is a list of personal items that were found inside the home, as stated by LE:
    “‘The most unusual factor in this case is that every single belonging that we are aware of was located in the residence.’ [Atlanta Police Major Michael] O’Connor said. So his keys, his cellphone, debit card, credit cards, wallet, all of his identification, passports. Anything you can think of, we’ve been able to locate. None of those items are missing.’”
    https://www.myajc.com/news/crime--l...et-didn-get-promotion/U8abmBXjZqJ4yM7uqUXBMN/

    I don’t seem to be able to find any article that mentions his work cell phone. Has it been confirmed he had one?

    Correct:

    “Chris Torry, a neighbor of Cunningham’s, told FOX5 Atlanta the CDC employee made an unusual request a few days before he disappeared.

    ‘My wife and him swapped phone numbers…[On] Saturday, Tim called over to me from across the way and told me to take his number out of her phone. It seemed a bit strange,’ Torry recalled. (BBM)

    Did Tim speak to his sister before he left for work on Monday morning? Did they talk on the phone at 7:15 am?

    Given where he worked, most likely he would have needed ID to enter the building?

    There was like a 10 minute long interview with his parents and they said they called his work cell before they reported him missing, but it went straight to voicemail. I assume that means it wasn’t at the house. I’ll try to find that interview.
