Revoking GPG key with only passphrase and public key

I'm not sure whether this is the right place for such a post... so please let me know if another forum is more appropriate.

Here is the story: a few years ago I created a GPG key without an expiration date. I did create a revocation certificate but I can't find it.
Now I want to remove that key from key servers. I still remember the passphrase and I have the public key. Is there any chance I could revoke my key?
Otherwise is there a possibility to ask for a key being removed from key servers given that I can prove my identity and that I am the owner of the email address associated to it.

Thank you for your help.

Sorry :(

p.s.... If you can prove your identity I guess the administrators might co-operate and manually remove the key.

Ok, thanks.
I'll let you know if I manage to get the admins to remove it.
