Deleted wrong Google account and now my verified GMB listing is gone

I didn't understand the confusing way Google accounts works and I somehow had 2 accounts for my business. I deleted the one with no pics and no Youtube video.... which, I guess, happened to be the one associated with my already verified GMB listing. Now I can't find by business on the map or even in organic anywhere.
Is there a way to restore the deleted account? Or can I re-list & re-verify, but if I do will Google get confused and suspend me?

It's really weird as usually and if deleting a verified listing from oyur dashboard this deletion will not make a listing disappearing

It likely happens different in your case b/c of having had a SAB business with hidden addres.
I can still see it in Google's cache of https://plus.google.com/109110172996802792187/about.
It is a snapshot of the page as it appeared on 19 Aug 2016 19:10:33 GMT. (http://goo.gl/Q1dvVv of https://plus.google.com/109110172996802792187/about - seeing the most avaible information.of it.
But I don't think anybody can reinstate the original page https://plus.google.com/109110172996802792187/about again.

Thanks for the response Helmut. But what do you mean by a hidden address? The address was posted in the listing and all over the place. There is another similar business in my area, on the map, that has their address hidden for privacy - and they still show on maps. Most of the links you shared in your reply were 404.
Do you think if I start over and do a new GMB for my company that Google will flag it or suspend it?

http://goo.gl/Q1dvVv is the cached content of of https://plus.google.com/109110172996802792187/about.

And in the cached content the address line says "Little Rock, Arkansas 72207-4135" - means the page has shown before getting deleted just the city "Little Rock" of Arkansas
Learn more about Service Area Businesses (SAB) with hidden address in here:

or in here

Your was definetively defined as a SAB with hidden address
This doesn't mean you did not specify in your dashboard any street address.

But you unselected "I'm servicing customers at my business address"

So you are saying Google may have removed it because I wasn't serving customers at my address?
