This seems like a misunderstanding about the word "find".

In general I know what the character looks like.
I expect I would spot it immediately if I saw it.
For instance, it wouldn't be hard to recognize the dotless i
in a list of lowercase non-ASCII letters.  Especially if it is
in some sort of order.

I'm afraid you've been looking for a solution to some problem
that I wasn't talking about.
