I find them sometimes by clicking the family tree from let's say the parent's profile and then clicking descendants from a previous generation and if you are the profile manager it will display.  Good luck!

This changed at the end of May. No living people may be made public other than members themselves so all were made unlisted except for children under 13 who were deleted completely. This change was sent out in multiple emails and discussed quite a bit on G2G before it went into effect. This is all to comply with the European Union privacy laws. Other countries and the State of California are also enacting similar laws.

If you are the profile manager, go to your Watchlist, and see if you can locate them there.

As everyone already mentioned all living profiles have been set as unlisted due to the new GDPR. privacy laws and only profile managers and trusted list members can see the information of living profiles, so If you are the profile manager then there is no reason why you can't see or even edit an unlisted profile.
