I need to retrieve old messages I sent to a friend on Facebook from 3 years ago that I didn't delete.

Can I find them and where?

To view your older messages (messenger chat history) please follow these 2 simple steps:

1. Go to Messages


2. Choose the thread of the friend you want to search. Scroll all the way till you find the message you want.
(Optional) If by scrolling you can not find the message, click on Options (the little cog) and then on Open in Messenger to see all of the messages in a full page.
