Hi Carol,

Just to add a couple more options to the pool:

You can try to find the buddy using (from the buddy list) Buddies->New
Instant Message...   then the 'Name' field can search through your
buddies.  Once you find the right contact you'll probably see them as
offline.  If that's the case, you can right click their name in the
conversation window and choose "Show When Offline".  You can also show
offline buddies through the Buddies->Show->Offline buddies (again, from the
buddy list) menu.

A second option is to use the Hangouts plugin from which won't show anyone
offline (and has a few extra features)
