Perhaps you are not using it properly. Where it says 'Search for matches in', you have two options. Thread Posts only, and Thread subject lines
There is also a date range, I usually always use 'From the beginning'.
Also, in the second, third and fourth lines, there is an option for either 'must be returned' as well as 'must not be returned'.
If you can not find what you are looking for, I can try to help, to verify if there really is a problem with the search function, or not.
