For the sample file named “Excel Missing.vsdx”, when deleting the excel and add the image to the visio manually Using MS Visio - you will find the newly added shape is a new shape but not the child of the parent shape. So please just remove the child and do not add this newly shape to the parent shape.

if (sParentShape == null)
{                    
 vsdDiagram.Pages[0].Shapes.Remove(shape);                    
 sh.SendBackward();
}                
else
{                    
 //sh.ParentShape = sParentShape;                    
 //shape.ParentShape.Shapes.Add(sh);                    
 //vsdDiagram.Pages[0].Shapes.Remove(sh);                    
 sParentShape.Shapes.Remove(shape);                    
 //sh.SendBackward();                
}

Please try to send the child shape backward when it is a group shape like this sample code:

           if (sParentShape == null)
                {
                    vsdDiagram.Pages[0].Shapes.Remove(shape);
                    sh.SendBackward();

                }
                else
                {
                    sh.ParentShape = sParentShape;
                    shape.ParentShape.Shapes.Add(sh);
                    vsdDiagram.Pages[0].Shapes.Remove(sh);
                    
                    sParentShape.Shapes.Remove(shape);
                    sh.SendBackward();

                    //send shape to backward when it is a group shape
                    for (int i = 0; i < sParentShape.Shapes.Count;i++ )
                    {
                        Shape child = sParentShape.Shapes[i];
                        if (child.Type == TypeValue.Group)
                        {
                            child.SendBackward();
                        }
                    }
                }
