I'm afraid your data is not searchable in splunk anymore. The internal index has a frozenTimePeriodInSecs of 2419200 seconds which equals to 28 days by default, if haven't configured a coldToFrozenScript for the index the data was deleted. You can change that value by overriding the default in $SPLUNKHOME/etc/system/local/indexes.conf. Jus add a [_internal] stanza and override any settings you want. To display the current settings you can use:

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk btool indexes list _internal
[_internal]
.
..
...
frozenTimePeriodInSecs = 2419200
..
.
