Trigger when an item is created, delay check item still exists then update and send email



Im building a sign in/out app with a travel management component that needs to be managed in flow. If my users sign in with and out with the powerapp the sharepoint list item will be removed and archived on another sharepoint list elsewhere, however if the user forgets to sign out or is still at work for more than 14 hours id like the item to be updated and an email sent


Here is my current flow


Trigger - When an item is created,

Action - Delay (14 Hours)

Condition - Check to see if item is still in the list and if so send email and update item (to be removed from the list with another flow) 

The condition is where i am stuck at? how do i check if the item is still here? do i have to use a get items ID eq 'ID' and then a condition or can i use a body equal null in the condition?

@ShaneITAutomate  you can use both Get Item or Get Items actions. If you are using Get Item, then you can use send email action with Configure run after Get Item succeeds. If you are using Get Items action, then use filter query ID eq <idvalue>, and then use condition with below expression on left side of condition and select greater than and specify 0 on the right side
