search for/search after


1.The rescue squad abandoned the search after four days.

2.Every man passes his life in the search after friendship.

3.The unemployed will search for jobs online.

These two phrases can replace with each other?

    We commonly speak of searching for something.

    "Search after" is not a phrase in your first sentence. Consider it written this way:

    "After four days, the rescue squad abandoned the search."
