Application.FileSearch how to look in more than one folder

Part of my existing code is as follows:

With Application.FileSearch
        .NewSearch
        .FileName = "*.csv"
        .SearchSubFolders = False
        .LookIn = "S:\Folder1\Data
        .Execute

        etc, etc.


Question:    How would I set the above type of code up if I wanted to look in more folders, such as S:\Folder2\Data,
                  S:\Folder3\Data, etc, etc.
                  Do I have to re-code the above for each folder I want to look in?  Or can I list multiple folders on the
                  ".Lookin =" line?

I'm hoping for something like this:

With Application.FileSearch
        .NewSearch
        .FileName = "*.csv"
        .SearchSubFolders = False
        .LookIn = "S:\Folder1\Data, S:\Folder2\Data, S:\Folder3\Data   <----don't know how to code it but want to look
                                                                                                           in multiple folders here.
        .Execute

        etc, etc.
