How to find shared videos sent in messenger group chat?

I can't find a video that was sent in a group chat ages ago, how would I find it?

It was taken down by the sender, blocked by Facebook or your group chat is set to save only some of the messages. Most likely, it is there but you are passing over it. Each time you swipe down for more data to appear it is easy to miss messages as they load.
