Photos (placed as part of Word doc) go outside of text frames when using Find/Change to style text

My workflow involves importing reports written in word that contain text, images and tables (see image 1) into a indesign pre-made template with client logo, details etc on each page (see image 2).

I do this by using the 'Place' function to import the Word doc (see image 3). The document is placed correctly - text and images are in order and Word styling is retained for text (see image 4).

I then need to change different text within the ID document to match the styling for the template. I do this by using the 'Find/Change' function (see image 5). Chaning the text works fine howver, after I apply this all the photos go outside the text frame (see image 6).

Is there any way to prevent this from happening or to re-arrange the images automatically?
