We have several users sharing their Outlook (2010) Contacts such that any user can open a number of other users' Contacts. Each one shows up looking a bit like a sub folder under what looks like a folder named "Shared Contacts" (see screen grab below).

What we want to do is search across all these shared folders and return multiple results for, say, Joe Bloggs, indicating whose contacts he appears in and allowing us to compare the details entered for one contact by different users.

It does not seem possible to select the "Shared Contacts" item to search all its sub items.

How can we search across all the shared Contacts? screengrab

When you start a search, it will enable the search ribbon at the top.  Select "All Contact Items" and you should be good to go.
