Missing employee Timothy Cunningham was not passed over for a promotion — CDC

Missing employee Timothy Cunningham was not passed over for a promotion — CDC

Missing CDC researcher Timothy Cunningham was indeed promoted prior to his disappearance, agency officials clarified late last month.

Those details were actually released by the Atlanta Police Department during a press conference on their ongoing attempts to find Cunningham, who went missing on February 12 after leaving work and supposedly returning home.

Cunningham, 35, hasn't been seen or heard from since leaving work sick on Monday, Feb. 12. Atlanta police say he left all his personal belongings behind, including his keys, wallet and even his dog.

Now a statement from the CDC on Monday is completely contradicting the officer's claim, explaining that Cunningham received an "exceptional proficiency promotion" on July 1 to the position of commander as recognition for his "exemplary performance in the U.S. Public Health Service".

Despite reports he disappeared right after he was passed over for a promotion, Dr. Schuchat said he'd been given an "early" promotion to the rank of commander, effective July 1 of past year, for his "exemplary performance".

"He told my husband to tell his wife - me - to erase his cellphone number from my cellphone", Tory said.

Schuchat also said that they have not "given up hope that he will soon be found".

"Our information came directly from the CDC", Chafee said in a statement. "If anyone reading this has information about the whereabouts of Commander Cunningham, please come forward".

A GoFundMe page has brought in more than $24,000 to establish a reward for information that might lead to Dr. Cunningham.
