Unfortunately, Timothy's body was found near the Chattahoochee River late Tuesday night, according to WSB-TV Atlanta.
There were no signs of foul play and the preliminary cause of death is drowning, the medical examiner said. But on Tuesday, a body was recovered from the Chattahoochee River and has since been identified as the 35-year-old epidemiologist.
"We may never be able to tell you how he got into the river", said a police spokesman. Michael O'Connor of the Atlanta Police said the investigation is ongoing and that investigators are still awaiting the results of a couple more tests, but anticipates the investigation should be resolved within a month. He noted the body was found in an area that authorities had already searched in February without finding anything. On Monday this week, Cunningham's parents told the FOX News sister station in Cleveland their son provided a clue 24 hours before his disappearance, claiming they received a "disturbing" text from him but wouldn't elaborate.
"This is an extremely unusual set of circumstances", O'Connor said at a February 27 news conference.
Police previously had said they had no evidence of foul play, but could not rule it out.

The Associated Press reported he had been distraught after being passed over for a promotion.
Those are the words of the Atlanta Police Department's Homicide and Missing Person's Unit.
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 previous year.
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".
Friends also found the disappearance troublingly out of character. So was his beloved Tibetan spaniel, which concerned his family. His work as a Public Health Service commander including responding to public health emergencies such as the Ebola virus and Zika virus. The dog, known as Bo, had twice accompanied Cunningham to Harvard, where he earned his master's and doctoral degrees.
Cunningham's father told The New York Times in February that he'd been anxious about his son recently because he didn't seem like his usual self in conversation.
