To be honest Glenn, my usual search is by sender name, which seems mostly successful, so far. My typical search method is typing in MM. Searching the browser pane. 

Items returned show in All Messages. 

When I have a chance, will try to replicate what you attempted (search for a file type, “.ics”) or other.
