When an account is deleted it has an ID like user123456.

Is there a way to search for questions whose OP has deleted the account? In other words, I want to list all the questions from deleted accounts.

How can I do that?

AFAIK there's no way to do this with regular site search, but the Stack Exchange Data Explorer may help. You'll have to search for Posts with PostTypeId = 1 (questions) and OwnerUserId IS NULL (that means there's no link to the owner, because it has been deleted). This query does so; feel free to fork it to add additional search terms (e.g. score, tags, or parts of the body).
