How do I flag a profile of a likely living person?

+8 votes
Came cross this "set" of profiles that are disconnected and without pretty much ANYTHING.  This is the only profile in the set that actually has a name associated with it. A familysearch search reveals that he was likely born in 1982, and thus, probably still living. The person who uploaded / created these profiles in 2011 abandoned them.  Since this is likely a living person, should we delete it? As I'm house-cleaning, how should I mark such profiles for deletion?

Alternatively, we could detach the relations and "recycle" them...

Please advise. Thanks.

I took care of these.  Going forward you can email info@ when you find stuff like this.  Thanks!

PS I did not delete the Male Hutchinson married to Female Davis as she is attached to actual people and may or may not be living still.

Thanks Eowyn.
Interesting.  Your changes weren't logged on the changes tab. And Wendell is still there.

Jillaine, since he is likely living and can be deleted, I suggest doing that. We already have plenty of profiles waiting to be recycled!

The grandparents are Norman Teague Hutchison and Georgis Kirk Davis looking at . I found that by searching on the great grandfather then finding a family search tree which provides some sources. His Father may be William L Hutchison going by "United States Census, 1940," database with images, FamilySearch( : accessed 19 July 2018), William L Hutchison in household of Norman T Hutchison, Garden City, Justice Precinct 1, Glasscock, Texas, United States; citingenumeration district (ED) 87-1, sheet 4B, line 58, family 17, Sixteenth Census of the United States, 1940, NARA digital publication T627. Records of the B ureau of the Census, 1790 - 2007, RG 29. Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 2012, roll 4040.

He may still be alive though so should also be deleted but the grandparents can be saved
