WikiTree Plus Help page has the following which should help

  • Text search CategoryWord=Unsourced Profiles (space between words) will return profiles that have one of the Unsourced Profiles templates, which would include those with no location or with locations.
  • Text search CategoryFull=Unsourced_Profiles  (underline between words) will return profiles that have no location
  • Additional Magic Words can help
    • 19cen will return profiles born in 19th century
    • Orphan

This looks like what you are looking for using the Category Word:

Trial and Error, just keep that Help Page bookmarked since he keeps adding new things.
Thanks Stephanie
