Last week starting around Wednesday November 18th manual actions began disappearing from Google Search Console. Google’s Daniel Waisberg confirmed everything is back to normal as of today.
We knew it was a bug – we told you not to get your hopes up. The day has come where those manual actions you had in your Google Search Console accounts are now reappearing. Google has not yet disclosed why they disappeared and now have returned in your manual actions viewer.

Everything should be back to normal. It affected only a tiny number of sites, so thanks for reporting it!
