CDC chief: Missing epidemiologist was not passed over for promotion

Dr. Cunningham left work early that day after telling colleagues he didn't feel well.

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 had said that the employee was told he would not be receiving a promotion the week before he disappeared, CBS News reports. Crime Stoppers said the money is for information "that points to criminal activity in the disappearance". Authorities are now offering a $15,000 reward for information into his disappearance. "In fact, he received an early promotion/exceptional proficiency promotion to Commander effective July 1, 2017", she wrote.

Atlanta police did not have further updates to provide Tuesday.

As a commander in the United States Public Health Service, Cunningham had worked on teams that responded to the Ebola and Zika crises.

Cunningham has been a prominent fixture in the Atlanta community. "We've talked to several of his co-workers, and they indicated obviously he was disappointed about this promotion", he said.
