Hi Vamshi,

I think the search function you can easily do it in trailhead for which the link is: https://trailhead.salesforce.com/en/content/learn/projects/develop-account-geolocation-app-with-aura-components/develop-account-geo-app-create-account-search-component

In case if you could something like:
<apex:page Controller="SearchInVFController">
        <apex:inputText value="{!searchKey}" label="Input"/>
        <apex:commandButton value="Search records" action="{!search}"/>
        <apex:commandButton value="Clear records" action="{!clear}"/>
        <apex:pageBlock title="Search Result">
            <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!acc}" var="a">
                <apex:column value="{!a.name}"/>
                <apex:column value="{!a.id}"/>
public class SearchInVFController {
    public list <Account> acc {get;set;}
    public String searchKey {get;set;}
    public SearchInVFController( ) {
    public void search(){
        string searchquery='select Name,id from account where name like \'%'+searchKey+'%\' Limit 10';
        acc= Database.query(searchquery);
    public void clear(){

I hope this helps.
