CDC Says Missing Doctor Wasn't Denied A Promotion

CDC Says Missing Doctor Wasn't Denied A Promotion

Cunningham, who attended Harvard and Morehouse College, left work early on February 12 because he said he was feeling ill.

Atlanta Police Maj. Michael O'Connor had previously stated in a news conference last month that Cunningham failed to obtain a promotion to branch manager and met with his supervisor to discuss the issue one week before he went missing.

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. Crime Stoppers said the money is for information "that points to criminal activity in the disappearance".

Dr. Schuchat added Dr. Cunningham was promoted to commander effective July 1, 2017. "The objective of that meeting was to explain a promotion he did not receive to branch manager", he said.

Anyone with information surrounding Timothy Cunningham's disappearance is urged to contact Atlanta police at 404-546-4235.

Now a $15,000 reward is being offered for anyone with information leading to an arrest or indictment.

Cunningham is an epidemiologist at the Atlanta-based federal agency.

Atlanta police did not have further updates to provide Tuesday. Cunningham was told the previous week he was not getting the job, O'Connor said. "We've talked to several of his co-workers, and they indicated obviously he was disappointed about this promotion", he said.

As a commander in the United States Public Health Service, Cunningham had worked on teams that responded to the Ebola and Zika crises. "If anyone reading this has information about the whereabouts of Commander Cunningham, please come forward", Dr. Schuchat said Monday.

"Over and above any of his assignments at CDC, his early promotion within the USPHS reflects his excellence as an officer and an employee", the statement read.

The unusual circumstances surrounding Cunningham's disappearance have continued to baffle authorities. "We want him to return to his loved ones and his work - doing what he does best as a CDC disease detective - protecting people's health".
