Not sure what happened but my Search Service Application Proxy is missing and I can't delete the Search Service Application.

Error when attempting to delete: Sorry, Something went wrong. No search service instances found in the farm.

I added the search service proxy back via PowerShell but it disappeared.

Search Service Topology is stuck on "loading."

Taken from ULS log:

Getting Error Message for Exception System.Web.HttpUnhandledException (0x80004005): Exception of type 'System.Web.HttpUnhandledException' was thrown. ---> System.Exception: No search service instances found in the farm.

How can I delete the SSA?

Please try to use the PowerShell to remove search service application.

Get the ID of the search Service application:

Get-SPServiceApplication

Then use the Remove-SPServiceApplication below to remove the search service application:

Remove-SPServiceApplication   searchserivceapplicationid    -removedata
