Reminders and Alarms are sounding but i cannot find them to edit/delete them

I created a reminder to tell my son that "it is 9:55am, time to set up the computer" and that "It is 10:00 am, class is starting."  I also have an alarm that goes off at 8am each weekday on my google nest home system. I cannot find where they are located to edit/delete them.  Ive looked in my calendar, ive looked in the google app, ive looked in the Home app, ive asked and looked on my Google Nest Hub display and all of them do not show any alarms that are set, reminders active, routines set, that would cause these notifications to keep happening.  Ive checked all my google accounts as well, still nothing.  WHat am i missing?

I tried adding reminders every way I know how and I could always find in either the calendar or by asking my phone to show reminders.  I think in most, if not all, cases the reminder was in both places.

Is there any chance those "reminders" are somehow integrated into or configured as a routine?  In Google Home you might check the various Routines to see they are there. Perhaps a routine has been configured with a starter at 9:55 and has an action to say something?

Is there any chance you have another Google Account that maybe you don't use anymore but did at one time?

If you add a new reminder by saying "Hey Google remind me to go for a walk at 11:00" does it show up for you in the calendar or my asking Google to show your reminders?

Hmm. Sounds like you have tried the usual methods.  What happens when you say "Hey Google, show me my reminders" on a phone?  It should show you. There will also be a button [More reminders] that will bring up a page with all of them.

Any chance there are multiple people using the speaker/display devices?  Maybe the reminder was recorded under another user's account?  For example, if my wife says "Hey Google remind me to xxxx at 1:30" it shows under her account and will display on her phone and calendar. If I say it, it shows under my account.

I didn't even think about my wife's account, but unfortunately to no avail. No alarms or reminders under hers as well, And even thinking back I'm 100% sure that I made them myself, though I am uncertain whether I did them physically on my phone or if I did them by telling my system.

Yep, there it was.  I had checked all my custom routines BUT I had reconfigured the preset "workday" routine to announce several reminders unrelated to my workday. Thank you very much!
