Not sure that is possible, but you could try contacting the Court Clerk or the Debtor's attorney. However, the Debtor is required to list all creditors. You might receive a distribution if assets are discovered. Also, most cases close within 3-4 months anyway.

After a dismissal the case will be closed. The bankruptcy will be over unless/until a motion is made and granted reopening the case.
