Searching For Media In a Massive Timeline in Final Cut Pro

You've just completed the most ambitious documentary you have ever produced, creating a large and involved timeline filled with various audio clips, graphic elements created in Photoshop and sequences on top of more sequences. Much to your dismay, one of your interviewees contacts you to say that a still image she given to you is no longer relevant to the subject your project covers. This is how you would EFFICIENTLY go about finding that clip in a massive timeline!
