Missing epidemiologist was not passed over for promotion — CDC chief

Tim Cunningham still missing; CDC marks one month since employee vanished

The acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday that an employee who has been missing for a month was not passed over for a promotion before his disappearance, as police had previously reported.

The CDC said reports of the job snub were incorrect.

Timothy Cunningham, a 35-year-old epidemiologist at the agency, mysteriously disappeared on February 12.

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.

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.

The firm owned 10,234 shares of the semiconductor company's stock after acquiring an additional 781 shares during the quarter. Mariner Wealth Advisors Llc decreased Ishares Tr (IWM) stake by 3,615 shares to 121,439 valued at $17.99 million in 2017Q3.

Cunningham's next-door neighbor, Viviana Tory, told CBS News correspondent Omar Villafranca that Cunningham said something odd to her husband that day.

Authorities have said no evidence of foul play was involved in Cunningham's disappearance.

"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", Dr. Schuchat said.

Last week, Cunningham's father released photos of the July promotional ceremony, hoping to set the record straight about his son's career and his demeanor on the day the epidemiologist left work.

A GoFundMe page has brought in more than $24,000 to establish a reward for information that might lead to Dr. Cunningham. "If anyone reading this has information about the whereabouts of Commander Cunningham, please come forward", Dr. Schuchat said Monday.
