Not that I know of Jose and I'm not hearing about an upswing in deleted listings.
But it does appear they deleted your Local/maps/Places part of the page, just leaving a G+ social page.
Is your address valid on that G+ listing? Because in streetview it does say Locksmith on the storefront but it says Pepe's Locksmith. Is there another locksmith at that same location? Or did you change names and not repaint. That could cause problems if there was a manual review.
Plus your name still has city in it on that page. Had you deleted Chicago from the name back when the guidelines changed?
I'd just contact phone support directly. They are the only ones that can explain why they deleted the listing or possibly reinstate it.
for a few days now I wanted to bring it up here but with the kids on a winter break who have time to breath
For some time now I'm monitoring the service industries locals ( Plumbers , locksmith, towing ) and a few more and I can defiantly confirm a MAJOR spam cleanup on the locksmith category of the locals.
ill attach a sample of "Locksmith Dallas " and "Locksmith Houston " for you guys to see , as you all remember those area you couldn't see the actual map from all the red dots on them and now they all cleaner then I can ever remember, and the one that are on the maps are the actual local guys , mobile and shops but according to my stats 80%-90% of the fakes are gone , let's see how long it will last this time , I think it is related to the lawsuit by the guy from Washington DC few months back and Google clean up their act
the guys that answer the phone dont really know thy need to escalate it to tech dept but thy did replay the SAME day ( yes unbelievable) and fix it , this is the replay email i got so you should be ok very soon:

"Tom that description would look really spammy to Google. Locksmiths are under extreme scrutiny. Not sure they'd delete you for description spam but in combination with any other spammy signals they might.
Count how many times locksmith, lock, locked, Citrus and Fl are repeated in that short description."

Count how many times locksmith, lock, keys and Chicago are repeated in that short description.
Again not sure they'd delete you for description spam. But Locksmiths are under extreme scrutiny and in combination with any other spammy signals they might.
That's an easy signal the algo could flag that most spammy listings use - if they wanted to do mass clean up quickly. Then the ones that are legit and request re-inclusion, support could at that point check to see if the business was real and reinstate it?
(Just a theory, nothing to back it up. But knowing how Google thinks, I believe it's possible.)
