How to get a list of user mentions in Confluence

hi all,

There are places where users have user mentions in Confluence ( Example - for more info, contact @Johndoe). These users are no longer employees and I want to edit those user mentions to the primary contact person.

Is there a way to get a list of all user mentions on a page/space?

thanks !
