# Deleted question still shows up in search results

This deleted question still appears in the search results if you look for its content, e.g. when searching for "it seems they forgot to take the square root in the denominator":

SEDE says it has been deleted on April 4th, so it can't really be a caching issue.

Note for ♦ moderators: I have a hunch that undeleting and redeleting might solve the issue; perhaps it's better for the developers' analysis to leave it like this. They do monitor s on child metas.

• So, you're claiming that the sound advice of shouldiblamecaching is false due to caching on their part? – Asaf Karagila Jun 28 '19 at 18:19
• Well, if you consider ElasticSearch to be a kind of 'cache' for the real Stack Exchange database, it's definitely a caching issue. – Glorfindel Jun 28 '19 at 18:20
• I prefer my search to be plastic. It's better for the environment, too, since those are easy to recycle. – Asaf Karagila Jun 28 '19 at 18:22
• I get the same behavior. When I click on the second link in the question above, I also get the same $1$ result appearing. Clicking on the search results link gives me a "Page not found" response. – John Omielan Jun 28 '19 at 21:15
