How to modify joomla default search module to add a dropdown

Is there a way to use template override to add a dropdown that displays a list of submenu items to limit the joomla default search module to?  What kind of query would I need to generate the list of submenu items?  How can I force joomla to limit the search list to these litems after I add the dropdown to the default.php?

It might be worth having a look at some extensions to handle this..?

I am not sure to be honest, I just thought before trying to write your own script for this, to read through the extensions and see if any handle your request
