Not able to Edit or Delete a Scheduled Message to a NEW recipient?

I set up a scheduled message in a group text to be sent as individual text messages. I need to go back and change a mistake in the text, but I cannot access the scheduled message. When I tap the 3 dots in the upper right corner, I only see "Draft Messages" and "Locked Messages" in addition to a few other features, but none relating to scheduled messages. How can I access my scheduled messages so I can edit it?. I have tried: Tapping on the 3 dots, going to messages from my apps menu, starting a new text message to the same receivers, and anything else I could think of
