Google Index for Google+ brand page

I know I'm not the first person to confuse a business profile/account with a brand page :) So, in error, I created a business account for a project/website that later (on advice of G+ help) needed to be a brand page. I deleted the business account/profile and created a new brand page  (a couple weeks ago) under my personal account. 

 

Now however, the wrong account comes up in Google searches

Wrong URL

 

is there somewhere other than here that I should submit this to have it corrected/updated/re-indexed for new data?

 

Thank you

I'm not sure what search you applied to get the "Wrong URL"


searching for sites: plus.google.com  "TravelMap.guide"

I get two differnt pages as result:

1# 

TravelMap.guide - Google+

2# 

LinkAge Photo - Google+

Yes, that G+ profile '102050210075339559346' is the old one, now deleted. I can tell by the search result as well. The profile name followed by the repeated name in brackets is a username I ended up with and couldn't change, and what led me down the road to find out I needed a brand page instead. Anyway, it's not a big deal as you and I are now likely the only two people to have searched that, but it would be nice if there were a means of submitting the new profile to be indexed and overwrite the old.

Believing there  is often a delay like thisuntil the indexing procedures are updated
