How can I include author archive pages in the default search results?

For example if I have an author name Billy Joe and I type his name into the search box a link to his author archive would display.

Relevanssi can be configured to search in author names.

It doesn't search in author descriptions.

    I'm wondering how this can be achieved without the use of a third party plugin. – EHerman Jan 23 '15 at 16:41

    It only lists posts that have been written by an author which matches the seach term. It does not list the author archive page as a search result :/ – 2ndkauboy Apr 26 '16 at 12:00
