1. How to see ignored friend requests on Snapchat?

3. Why Can’t You Find a Person after Adding him on Snapchat?

When you can’t find the person on Snapchat by searching after you’ve added him, it might be because the user has blocked you or has deleted his account.

If you’ve added a user but cannot find the account after searching, you need to check if the person has blocked you or not. You can head on to the chat section of your Snapchat account by swiping right from the camera screen. There, you may find the previous chats you’ve had with the user.

You can open the chat and send a snap to the person. If you see the snap is not getting delivered to the user instead it’s showing pending, you can be sure that the user has blocked your account.

Moreover, it’s also possible that the user has deleted his account which is why you can’t find him on Snapchat. Therefore, to confirm it, you can ask a mutual friend to search for the user on Snapchat.
