If I have a username of a person, Can I know which PC in the organization he is logged in now. Is there any search method? Remember I am not sitting on the server as I am not a network administrator, infact I am in user support.

Your best bet (at least on a large network) is to find out the user's home drive, or any connection to a file server that's made when a user logs on.

Open Computer Management on the fileserver and go to Shared Folders > Sessions.

If the user is currently connected to the file server then it will list the user name and the computer name or IP address.
