Try SQLYog (14 days free trial), it has the Data Search function to search values in tables/fields

PhpMyAdmin or Adminer will allow you to do a search thru the whole db.

dump it to a text file and do a text editor like notepadd++ to locate it :)

mysqldump -u myuser --no-create-info databasename > myfile.sql
