Hi, Probably not the solution you were hunting for but I create a PDF 
and search for the offending text. It gets the job done in a roundabout 
sort of way
Sadly, this is my method as well.  It is especially irritating when
using Master Documents [which link many docuemnts].  The documents *CAN*
reference each other but only that only works from the Master Document,
so refreshing the master document and generating a PDF and searching for
the text is [so far] the simplest way I have found.
I've not tested this idea myself, but why don't you just search for the
offending error (i.e. Reference source not found) in the master
documents itself? Why you first generate a PDF from that?

Because the error message text is not actually 'in' the document, it is
the results of the cross reference de-referencing.   Thus, in the master
document you cannot find / Ctrl-F the error message.

P.S. I don't have a serious solution, but I think this can be my problem
in the future too.
Cross reference and Master Documents are the killer feature of
LibreOffice, but this is one corner where it falls down [why can't a
document 'know' in it's meta-data that it is part of a master document,
dunno, that would probably be a big deal, but it would certainly be a
boon for this feature-set].
