Search for files in Google Drive owned externally

I'm working on transferring one of our teams in our Google Apps for Education domain to Google Team Drive but I'm running into a problem with files owned externally. A little background and elaboration:

Our organization hires seasonal employees that make use of and edit a shared curriculum, to try and limit ownership issues with such a high turnover rate we used a 'shared' account. For example curriculum@myDomain.edu. This account owns the vast majority of the documents in it's drive but occasionally employees have created documents using their personal gmail accounts. When I try to migrate curriculum@myDomain.edu's folders and files to Team Drive I get an error because some of the files aren't in my domain.

I'm trying to find a way to search for these files so I can either copy them or delete them prior to transferring folders to Team Drive. Also open to other suggestions
