Why don't you unlock the locked layer?

You have the 'Include locked layers' button enabled, so if inDesign then gets upset that you found something on a locked layer, I'd say that that's a bug.

Hm. I'm not sure about this.

When you use the "Find Next" button InDesign should select the found object.

On a locked layer this is not possible.

InDesign happily selects found text on a locked layer (provided you enable 'Include locked layers')
