Every document in the Virtual Book and Function Navigator are part of the body of documentation searched from the Documentation Center.  So simple searching will find everything.

Perhaps what you're really asking is, once a hit is found, how can you find it in the Virtual Book or Function Navigator so you can see the context and 
neighboring documentation.  To do this, click the appropriate icon (the two
icons next to the home icon) in the help window.  If the document exists in the Virtual Book or Function Navigator, depending upon which one you clicked, it will be opened and highlighted.

For example, search for

=09interactive manipulation

The first link is a guide page about interactive manipulation, and the second is the reference page for Manipulate.  Clicking on either one of these and then clicking the Function Navigator button will show the context in the Function Navigator.

The sixth link is a link to the "Introduction to Manipulate" tutorial. Click 
this, then the Virtual Book button to show its context in the Virtual Book 
documentation.
