Find Office documents that link to file share locations after migrating to SharePoint Online

Frequent Contributor

I have some users that have moved their file share documents to SharePoint Online. The problem is that they have documents that have links to other documents. Those links are all pointing to the file share location (e.g. \\servername\foo). They are willing to update the links, it isn't unmanageable, but they want to make sure they find all the documents (Word or Excel) that need updated. Is there any way to use search to find this content as a link inside of a document?

@Kevin Hoytdoesn't think there will be searching with Sharepoint that find out all the document that has links....could be even not possible with PowerShell script... I am afraid to say the only option will be manually clicking and checking each document.
