I do not think this GDG would have been removed ,this is Production and we have strong processes in place .this should not have happened.
Why not just look under TSO ISPF option 3.4 and know for sure rather than thinking? Without facts, such as finding out for sure about the GDG, we're not going to be able to do anything more than guessing and you can do that just as well as we can.
And, by the way, I've seen a number of cases where someone thought they were working with test data sets and made changes to production by mistake so it is entirely possible that the GDG was deleted. No, it should not have happened -- but that doesn't say it did not happen. In at least one case the person used their emergency id so they had full access to the production data sets even though there was no reason for that use.
