Method 1: Use Google Search Console Here's how to remove a URL using Google Search Console: Visit the Remove URLs tool here: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/url-removal. Select your website under “Please select a property” Click the grey button, enter your URL and click “Continue”

If they are truly deleted they should return a 404 or 410 https status code and not show up as valid/indexed. They should show up as excluded due to their 404 status.

The reports may be delayed.

If they are returning a 404 status, then they will be excluded over time. The URL removal tool can speed that up, but if they are not 404ing the URLs will eventually return.
