How do I search OpenChatter messages?

I have tried using a Custom Filter on field "Messages", but it always returns zero records. I have also tried the "Edit SearchView" from developer menu and added: 

<field name="message_ids" operator="child_of"/>.

The search always returns no results. I only need to search the Message (not the user or date). Is this a known bug? Or am I doing something wrong?

Anyone else having this issue?

Have you seen https://apps.openerp.com/apps/modules/9.0/base_search_mail_content/ ?

This module adds the capability to find on any object (e.g. partner, lead, project issues, helpdesk tickets) based on the conversation threads associated to them.
