CDC says missing doctor not passed over for promotion

In the statement, she refers to "news coverage that Commander Cunningham recently did not receive a promotion.this information is incorrect", she said.

The acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention denied on Monday that an employee who has been missing for a month was passed over for a promotion before his disappearance.

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".

They also closed with a message to Cunningham directly.

The Cunningham's have helped fund a $15,000 Crime Stoppers reward to help generate solid leads in their son's disappearance.

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