This is not about a bride gone missing. It means looking for a suitable match for a man to arrange a marriage.

Usage

Son settled?
No, that is my big remaining duty. All others I have discharged. Once he settles, it will be all over.
Are your searching?
Yes. We are searching for a bride for our son and also a groom for our niece. If you know of alliances, kindly let us know.
