Is there a way to to open a pdf file in a browser and automatically search/highlight(find in file) a given text string? I'm using PHP.

Here is how I open the pdf currently
header("Location: SamplePDF.pdf");

Here is how I would like to open it in a perfect world- something like  
header("Location: SamplePDF.pdf?SearchText=Pizza");

I kknow that the solution(if there is one) is probably far more extensive.
