Can you post the name, address, and phone number? Hard to say anything for sure without looking under the hood. 

As a guess though, if your site's ranking well but you're not showing in any of the 3 packs and there's no knowledge graph showing for your business name, then a penalty is one of the things that could cause that. If you log into your account, is there a big red bar on the top saying you've been shut down for spam? If that's not showing it's still possible there's a penalty of some kind at work, but... at that point I definitely wouldn't want to say anything without taking a look.

No the page is totally vanished lol. Have no Idea why this would happen. Now if you type in GTA painting in the search its showing up in 3 pack but the page is gone. Any help would be great. Cheers

Wow, it's gone alright, I wasn't expecting that. I don't know that I've seen this before. @JoyHawkins or @Colan or any of the other experts... I don't suppose anyone else has seen this? 

The plus page is 404'ing. I did a little duplicate research and found a second page here:
https://plus.google.com/103458632299364363727

that's also 404'ing. I'm about to watch a movie with my partner, so I'm trying to bang this out real quick, otherwise I'd have checked the Google cache to see if it's obvious when they were deleted. Maybe I'll check it out tomorrow if no one else solves it in the meantime. 

The business is definitely showing in the 3 pack though, and the map maker listing looks fine:
http://www.google.com/mapmaker?gw=90&cid=13526372030632698189

I'd be really interested to know how a GMB page can be deleted like that without causing any problems, very strange.

 or  @james w & @Nick H

 

Are you aware the obviously verified listing  https://goo.gl/maps/p5CXbaKcgU12 ?


But I agree there seems not yet exist any G+  page tied to this result.

 

I will escalate it to our CM of the forum

 

as a side note:

not even the webarchive website has any information of either URLs:

https://plus.google.com/+GtapainterreviewsBiz or

https://plus.google.com/101124489956807446913

 

 

for the record strange bug reported - page gone for existent list

My guess is that your other page became unverified because you already have a verified listing for this business as Helmut pointed out.

https://www.google.ca/maps/place/GTA+Painting/@43.75913,-79.4165707,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:... is verified. Do you have access to that page?

two remarks to all of you:
at first I have escalated it as promised and Goolge is on it
secondly and to James' supposed duplicate: https://plus.google.com/103458632299364363727

If you take a look onto my below link
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1e0gp10oYZ5Dl-C-6dx9gDSvagpE-bcZbJpn_cfcFpmU/edit

you will see a third link https://plus.google.com/b/103458632299364363727/+GtapainterreviewsBiz/about

This one makes clear that https://plus.google.com/103458632299364363727
and
https://plus.google.com/+GtapainterreviewsBiz are the same.

Its just teh bad fact the page disappeares despite of the existent listing
Lets wait on what their engs will figure out
