I restored macOS 10.13.3 from current Time Machine backup, now some files cannot be located with Finder or Spotlight. Needed files were in UserName I used on daily basis.

I restored because logging into the other username made OS inaccessible - did not respond to any keystroke input.

Assuming they were on TM backup, how can I locate the files?
