Can pages be hidden in IMDb?

Is there a reason why someone might disappear from IMDb? When I was first added, there was someone else on here with my name, so I was made (II). Then she randomly disappeared almost a year ago, and no longer comes up in any searches. However, I still have the (II), so I assume she is still out there somewhere. Is there a way to make her searchable again, or remove the (II) from my name if she is gone on purpose?

One possibility is that the person changed their name - got married (or divorced) and changed their last name, added a middle name, etc.

Another possibility is that it was determined that none of the credits on (I)'s page were valid - the titles weren't eligible to be listed in the database, all the credits were for uncredited work, the credits were fake, etc.

The IMDb's policy on roman numeral reassignment:
To avoid confusion among our users and to prevent potential loss of data due to unnecessary corrections, we do not change or reorder roman numerals once they have been assigned, except as dictated by internal technical requirements.
