Missing Doctor wasn't snubbed over promotion: CDC

Reward for missing CDC scientist Timothy Cunningham grows to $15000 Tim Cunningham still missing; CDC marks one month since employee vanished

This came exactly one month after Cunningham, 35, was first reported missing.

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

Acting CDC Director Anne Schuchat also tried to clear the air around what might have driven the disappearance of Dr. Cunningham, a commander in the Public Health Service.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that, "There has been news coverage that Commander Cunningham recently did not receive a promotion".

Although the CDC's prepared statement on Timothy Cunningham's disappearance maintained that issues with a potential promotion were not involved, another Atlanta police officer disputed that on Monday, not long after the statement was released.

The change in regulations may hit import dependent businesses and trade that are often reliant on LoUs to get bank guarantees. Last month, Nirav Modi commented saying, that PNB had closed all doors of recovering dues for his brand by going public.

News reports and investigators have said Dr. Cunningham told co-workers February 12 he wasn't feeling well and had been denied a promotion.

"Over and above any of his assignments at CDC, his early promotion within the USPHS reflects his excellence as an officer and an employee", the statement read.

CDC doctor Timothy Cunningham mysteriously disappeared on February 12 and Atlanta police department has been trying hard to find more information about him. He left work early on that day, claiming he was not feeling well.

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. "If anyone reading this has information about the whereabouts of Commander Cunningham, please come forward".

Now a $15,000 reward is being offered for anyone with information leading to an arrest or indictment.
