VB.NET Search Algorithm

Is there a built in search solution that allows me to search a string for multiple search terms?

I'd also like to know the proximity of the search terms.

I figure that I'm going to have to develop a custom solution, but I'd hate to reinvent the wheel if it already exists.

Thanks for your time
