But the acting director also took time clarify issues regarding Cunningham's career. Sgt. John Chafee chose not to say much about the Cunningham case, simply telling CBS News that the Atlanta Police Department got its information "directly from the CDC", redirecting other inquiries about the case to the agency's media release.

The CDC said reports of the job snub were incorrect.

"In fact", the CDC statement continued, "he received an early promotion/exceptional proficiency promotion to Commander effective July 1, 2017, in recognition of his exemplary performance".

Crime Stoppers Atlanta announced Tuesday that the reward for information leading to criminal activity in the disappearance of 35-year-old scientist Timothy Cunningham has grown to $15,000.

Anyone with information on his disappearance is urged to call 911 or the Atlanta Police Homicide/Adult Missing Persons Unit at 404-546-4235.

Cunningham held a meeting on February 12 with his supervisor, O'Connor said in the February 27 briefing.

Cunningham left his office February 12 saying he was not feeling well.

"That meeting was to explain a promotion that he did not receive to branch manager". "We've talked to several of his co-workers, and they indicated obviously he was disappointed about this promotion", he said.

His concerned parents found his wallet, vehicle and beloved pet all abandoned at Cunningham's Atlanta area home.

Cunningham has been a prominent fixture in the Atlanta community. "If anyone reading this has information about the whereabouts of Commander Cunningham, please come forward".

Cunningham reportedly made a peculiar comment to his next door neighbor a day before his disappearance.

Monday's statement from the CDC surely validates the family's efforts to set the record straight, stating "over and above any of his assignments at CDC, his early promotion within the United States Public Health Service reflects his excellence as an officer and an employee".
