Another way to find your friends on Snapchat is to check your Add Friends section. Under the Add Friends section, you will see two parts, one is of ‘Added Me: Request’, and below it is the second of ‘Quick add: Contact’.

All the friends that appear on the lists are unfriended or deleted. If you have removed your friend and not deleted his/her contact information, then this method will surely work for you.
