If you have Adobe Acrobat XI Professional you can use Action Wizard to create an Action that saves files/folders to PDF:

With Adobe Acrobat Pro you can alternatively consider to create a full-text index with Catalog tool to perform advanced searches with search tool:

Just a side bar - But, if a PDF's content is the image from a scanner then there is no text for Find or Search to "hook".
Use Acrobat's OCR to obtain searchable text output.
