Does the business still exist under new ownership, or is it closed down? 

 

Can you provide the business name and phone number?

No problem. If it's closed, all you have to do his report it as closed to Google. See - https://support.google.com/business/answer/6314541?hl=en 

 

If you don't have the listing in your GMB account anymore you can still report it as closed in Google Maps.

 

Let me know if that works for you.
