How to find who deleted the tables?

New Contributor

Hey, someone deleted the tables from HDFS and it has been more than 24 hours, so we couldn't recover due to interval time, now we need to find when and which user deleted the file, I checked the hadoop-hdfs and hive logs but couldn't find anything related to deleted table.
