How do I Batch Reject From Catalog Original Files Not Found?

I have a large number of images in my catalog that are duplicates. The image files are from two different folder locations on the disk. I have deleted one of those folders with duplicate image files. Now in my Lightroom catalog I am left with image shells with its original file not found. I can mark each of these shells individually for rejection but that is taking me a very long time if I am to do them all. I have not found a way for Lightroom to recognize any such catalog shell such that I can reject them in a batch process. Can that batch rejection be done and if so how would I do it?

I don't know if this is going to help you are not. I had a hard drive crash a while back, and lost a sizable number of scanned images. When I restored the catalog which contained those scanned images there were a lot of holes in that catalog. I used the library module and simply highlighted the groups of images that were missing and chose to delete them and it worked. If you have marked a sizable number of images (or missing images) to be deleted then you can press Ctrl+Bkspc in Windows (or equivalent on the Mac) and Lightroom will give you the option to delete all images that have been marked for deletion.
