Once a contributor's profiles have been orphaned...is there a way to view a list of their profiles

A contributor's profiles were released for adoption this morning.  Is there a way to see which profiles he managed?   Thank you.

You can look at the contributions list of a former member. In this case it would be https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:Contributions&who=Utley-82 but that page is empty. My guess is that all of that person's contributions were on private profiles that were deleted when the account was closed.
A reminder that its good to have Digital Afterlife Instructions and to keep these current. Not that this happened in the Utley case.
He didn't have any contributions, yet he was a profile manager.  I kept sending him notes and he never responded; that' why he was deemed a non-responsive profile manager.  Thanks.
Good point, Elida. I'm actually intending the reminder for those of us who are active...sorry for the confusion!

If you know what surnames you are looking for, you can get a list of orphaned profiles for that surname from a link on the top of the Surname Genealogy page. For example, here's the orphans list for Utley.

Is there a sample of a "Digital Afterlife Instruction" so those of us that would like to put one on our profiles could maybe copy it to use?

From what I can tell, there's no way to see what profiles a person has created (including for yourself).  

There is of course the watch list, for the profiles you currently manage, which is about as close as you can get.  I don't know a way to see the watch list for somebody else, maybe WikiTree+ has an option for that?  And then a watch list from some point in the past would be a step beyond that.

Upon reviewing the various answers...there is no good way to review the profiles previously orphaned by a "another" contributor.  Hit and miss by using a surname.
