Restore Exchange 2013 items deleted with the Search-Mailbox command

I had a phishing email come in this morning and ran the following command against Exchange like I always do in this situation.
Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited | Search-Mailbox -SearchQuery 'From"Person@domain.com"' -DeleteContent

Unfortunately, I missed a colon after From and it deleted way more than just this one email from everyone's mailbox.  I know I should have used the -TargetMailbox command with this as not to lose data but I didn't.

Does anyone know of a way to recover the messages that were deleted with this command?  We do have a Barracuda message archiver that people can look in for their messages, but I'd really like to restore them to their mailbox.
