CDC chief: Missing epidemiologist was not passed over for promotion

CDC chief: Missing epidemiologist was not passed over for promotion

"As many of his colleagues ... have pointed out, this information is incorrect", acting CDC Director Dr. Anne Schuchat said in a statement released Monday.

Atlanta Police said that Cunningham was told he wouldn't receive a promotion a week before he went missing. Crime Stoppers said the money is for information "that points to criminal activity in the disappearance".

The Washington Post was among the publications that reported on Timothy Cunningham allegedly going missing due to work-related issues, writing earlier this month that the CDC doctor vanished not long after he was told he wasn't going to get promoted.

"In fact", the CDC statement continued, "he received an early promotion/exceptional proficiency promotion to Commander effective July 1, 2017, in recognition of his exemplary performance".

Atlanta police announced on March 6 the reward for information about Cunningham's disappearance had been raised to $15,000.

The statement referred to the U.S. Public Health Service, the uniformed service where Cunningham, 35, works as an epidemiologist.

Police didn't find evidence of foul play, and efforts to find him in the woods near his home turned up empty, according to reports.

Cunningham has been a prominent fixture in the Atlanta community. Michael O'Connor said. "He had actually called in sick the two previous workdays".

Atlanta police did not have further updates to provide Tuesday. "He told several co-workers that he was and that he was expecting this promotion".

Viviana Tory, Cunningham's next-door neighbor, said that Cunningham had told her husband something odd on the same day.

"He told my husband to tell his wife - me - to erase his cellphone number from my cellphone", Tory said. Cunningham's parents reported him missing February 16 after going to his home and finding his belongings and vehicle there. "If anyone reading this has information about the whereabouts of Commander Cunningham, please come forward", Dr. Schuchat said Monday.
