In early March, multiple media outlets reported Dr. Timothy Cunningham, team lead for the CDC's division of population health, met with a supervisor February 12 to discuss why he hadn't received a promotion the week before he went missing, citing comments from an Atlanta police official.

Initial reports by Atlanta police indicated that Cunningham, 35, vanished without a trace February 12 after being turned down for a promotion.

In partnership with Crime Stoppers of Greater Atlanta, Cunningham's family increased the reward from $10,000 to $15,000 for any information that will help authorities land an arrest or indictment pertaining to Cunningham's disappearance.

Contrary to circulating news reports, Cunningham was not passed over for a promotion, according to Dr. Anne Schuchat.

After leaving work and telling co-workers that he wasn't feeling well, he reportedly called his mother at around 9:12 a.m. on that day, but he did not leave a voicemail when she was not able to pick up. His auto, keys, wallet, phone and dog were all at his home.

Schuchat said that Cunningham was promoted to commander effective July 1 "in recognition of his exemplary performance in the U.S. Public Health Service", a uniformed corps in the Department of Health and Human Services.

The CDC did not respond to multiple requests for comment about the discrepancy between their statement and information released by the police, or how the promotion Cunningham received over the summer was relevant. Chafee said, "Our information came directly from the CDC".

"Dr. Cunningham's colleagues and friends at CDC hope that he is safe", agency spokeswoman Kathy Harben told The Post after his disappearance.
