    It seems like the search function in Messages only returns results for the newest result in a conversation - any way to search for old messages? Hitting 'load more messages' 1,000 times isn't very efficient.

    Have you tried Spotlight?

    Although I just tried both in-app and Spotlight searches and both brought up old results.
