    ***neither a teacher nor a native-speaker***

    The second suggests that the effort you put in for the search was much more than the first one.

    or the second would be used as an answer to such a question:

    Q: Do you really want me to believe that you searched ?
    A: I did search...What makes it too hard for you to believe?

    But a native-speaker will give you more satisfactory reply, so I suggest you to wait for a while.
