Research vs Search Again

Hi guys

My doubt is about the prefix "re-". I know that the word "research" doesn't mean "to search again" (as in rebuild, retype, etc.) and that the "re" is actually part of the root word (research which comes from the French...).

Still, can one use the prefix "re-" with the verb "to search" so that it'd mean "to search again"? If it'd be possible, how would it be spelled? re-search? research?

Thanks in advance!
