How to stop a flow when an item is deleted from list

I have a flow that is triggered when an item is added. It'll send email with options to let user reply, if user doesn't reply after 5 days, it'll send the email again, and do it 3 times. Now we want to stop the sending email/flow when the item is deleted due to error. I saw someone suggest to remove the item from recycle bin and did that, But the flow is still running. How do I stop it? WE added over 1000 items at one time, so it's hard to find which flow associate with which item to cancel it from flow run history.

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

My suggestion was to export run information to Excel.  Then search that info to find the run associated with the item.  The, go to the specific run and kill it.

I suggest taking a look at Power Studio (formerly Flow Studio).  I believe that it allows you to export run information with details to Excel.  I'm not sure if it will give you the information that you need, but it is a great place o start.  There is a free trial available so you won't need to pay to use it just to solve this one issue.

I tried and didn't find a way to stop the flow for my deleted item. Any other suggestion?
