Search for discussion board posts by author, in the entire course

I thought there was a way to do this in the past, but I cannot remember. Is there a way, from the course level, to search discussion posts by a student for all discussions in the course. If, at the discussion board tool level, I do a search and type the author's last name in, it will not show (from an instructor account) posts from forums that are no longer available. But, if I go into the closed forums, I can search from within the forum. Is there a way to do this at the discussion board or course level? The course reports do not show individual posts, at least the ones I know of.


Preferably at the level in the attached screen. Am I missing something obvious?
