The Difference between "Find" or "Search"


“Find” means to discover, understand, feel or become aware of something. In case of find, you are not looking for a missing thing or trying to get to something you have lost.


For example: Her parents are very anxious indeed to find a teacher for her.


“Search” means to look for something thoroughly in a place.  Search is used when you are trying to look for something that is missing or lost.


For example: Tom searched the room.
