The following workflow refers to Lr desktop.
I was keywording a photo of a group of people I had just imported in Lr.
In the keyword panel, Lr presents all the faces and prompts for names.
I filled all the name fields but by mistake I somehow "deleted" one of them.
Maybe there is a way to correct Lr behavior telling the program that what it found was not a person. No idea. Presumably, I unintentionally clicked on something I shouldn't.
At the end of the process, all the people in the photo but one are named.
I couldn't find any way to correct my mistake and name the missing one.
Do I miss anything? Is there any turnaround?
Thank you for any help you all can provide.
Best
Guido

Check your Edit Like a Pro book (2022 Edition) - page 108. Unfortunately there is no way to draw a face (add a person) like there is in Classic. You could add a normal keyword for the missing person's name.

Also, I've not tried it, but how about delete the photo from Lightroom and import again, as Lr did find the person initially?

When in the single photo mode with the people icon highlighted, it will show the face boxes. You can delete them (there is a small X that may not be visible but is in the top right corner of each one) or draw your own square over a face that was not recognized.
 
Thank you so much, but this procedure works in LrC, but unfortunately it is not available in Lr cloud based.

YES! It worked. I exported the photo as it is, andI imported it again. The process kept caption and keywords but not the people names. So I was able to name all the persons, the missing one included.
Thank you so much!

Excellent! Glad you updated the thread, so others who read can benefit too.

I am very sorry, I was looking through new posts and failed to notice which forum you posted in, my apologies for the diversion.
