Just use the locate-like program mdfind.

(defvar anything-source-mdfind
  '((name . "mdfind")
     (candidates . (lambda ()
                     (start-process "mdfind-process" nil
                       "mdfind" anything-pattern)))
     (action . (("Find file" . find-file)
                 ("Open" . 
                   (lambda (file-name)
                       (concat "open " (shell-quote-argument file-name))
     (type . file)
     (requires-pattern . 3))
  "Source for retrieving files via mdfind.")

(add-to-list 'anything-sources anything-source-mdfind)
