Unresponsive manager of a profile marked as living (she passed away years ago)

Trying not to make this too long, just not sure what to do.  My husband's great-aunt (Luther-158) is an unlisted living person.  Except she passed away in 2011.  No response from the Profile Manager, which doesn't surprise me because I had no response when trying to merge his grandmother.  Since she is unlisted I can't do an unresponsive manager form.  I have been picking up orphaned relatives through this branch since they were uploaded as a gedcom and never cleaned up.  I am new to wikitree, but trying to do my part!

Thanks you for improving the profiles you were able to find. You can also email paul@wikitree.com about this situation as you are not able to fill out the Unresponsive Manager forms.
I am currently experiencing the same issue with Sollowy-1.
I’m going through the same sort of issue.  Since this thread is two years old, I’m wondering if it was resolved?

If you follow the procedures at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Unresponsive_Profile_Managers things should eventually get resolved.

Trying to follow directions, but still can't find the Unresponsive Profile Manager Form on the PM's page.  Her last contribution was in 2015, so she may not be around at all anymore.  And I can't see the unlisted profile that I am wanting to mark deceased to even see if there is an Unresponsive Profile form on it.

Found another person with a similar problem though, followed a link from that response, and just changed the name in the URL.  That worked!
It gets complicated with unlisted profiles since you have to do the unresponsive request from a profile that is being managed rather than from the profile of the PM itself.

Given the circumstances, and the fact the PM is not currently active, I would appeal directly to info @ wikitree.com for assistance. Give them the PM's ID and the profile ID of the great-aunt and carefully explain the situation.
