Who removed it should can put it back.
Or you can do it by yourself if you know the SSRS service account credentials.

So everyone is using the same credentials? :O
What about the second option? Using the SSRS service account credentials. Please don't tell me it's also the same credential.

Ok, a backup. I think is better to call them.

Usually the local admins from the Report Server (the server that has SSRS installed) have access to the portal. If you have a local admin account, you can log in to the server using that account and give yourself access again.

LIONKING - are you talking about SSMS? I tried that with my credentials and everything is grayed out

No, I was talking about logging in to the report server, per se. Not SSMS.
Anyhow, if they're able to provide you with a fresh set of credentials, I guess that's your best (and easiest) bet.
