You can look for a specific ghost message with something like

$ quest -btype:T -b id:Q -d .local/share/notmuch/default/xapian \
     "type:ghost and"

quest is also part of xapian-tools. Unfortunately I don't think quest
understands the way notmuch uses multiletter prefixes (without a :), so
to find references you still need to use xapian-delve.
