Everything across the Cloud Ecosystem should sync. Therefore, if you delete images on one device, then this will be mirrored on all the others.... so it's strange you can see them on your phone.


Anyway... on the Desktop, have you checked the deleted items folder being as if they are there, they can be restored.

 

It may be worth posting screenshots of Desktop and Phone so someone can help further.

Or do you mean that you deleted the "Lightroom Library.lrlibrary" package from your Pictures folder on your desktop? If that's the case, you can probably restore that from the Trash and if that doesn't work simply restarting the Lightroom Desktop app will automatically create a new "Lightroom Library.lrlibrary" package and then re-populate it from the master catalog in the cloud.

Thank you so much for replying. I deleted the librarylr package by mistake but it disappeared instead of going to the bin. I've just tried what you suggested and it is now downloading anew. Phew! Thank you very much.
