Default Where is Text Message Search option?

I don't see an option to search my text messages for specific words. I'm hoping I'm just blind so help a fellow M8'r out of this conundrum.

That is the default htc messages. Vzw added their own also which should sounds like your using. Hop to the settings clear default of the vzw messages app and it should ask next time what massager app u want to use. Then Choose the standard messenger app


Or go to settings. Click more. Then click default sms app and choose messages.
