I have a Figure 1 and Figure 3, with captions but no Figure 2

According to "insert cross-reference", there is a Figure 2 with the

cross-reference to it and when I go to it, it just goes to the next


How can I delete this fictional Figure 2 so my numbering goes back to


I've been trying to figure this out for hours!
