CDC says missing doctor not passed over for promotion

CDC says missing doctor not passed over for promotion

Today marks one month since Commander (CDR) Timothy Cunningham was last seen, and we have not given up hope that he will soon be found.

"We have not given up hope that he will soon be found", Schuchat wrote.

News reports and investigators have said Dr. Cunningham told co-workers February 12 he wasn't feeling well and had been denied a promotion. O'Connor was sure Cunningham was upset over the lack of promotion because he allegedly shared the news with co-workers. "His friends, family, and colleagues are desperately searching for him".

His concerned parents found his wallet, auto and beloved pet all abandoned at Cunningham's Atlanta area home.

"Tim never leaves Beau unattended", his father told NBC.




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

"In fact, he received an early promotion/exceptional proficiency promotion to Commander effective July 1, 2017, in recognition of his exemplary performance in the U.S. Public Health Service", the agency said in a statement to WXIA-TV.

At press conference last month, police Major Michael O'Connor revealed that Cunningham, an epidemiologist with the Atlanta-based CDC, met with his supervisors that morning and was given an explanation as to why didn't receive a particular promotion.

Atlanta Police Sgt. John Chafee told CBS News the department stands behind previous statements made regarding Dr. Cunningham's employment, citing the CDC as the direct source of the information.
