Search for customers in Magento

This may seem like a silly question but here goes:

I need search for customers based on the first and last line of their address. the current search in Magento doesnt retrieve data based on address so I was wondering if there is way to modify the search to include addresses.

Based on the results I would like to populate a form field with customer details* <== I hope

Does anyone know of a good extension or are willing to share some ideas...?

you can do something like:

$customerAddressId = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomer()->getDefaultBilling();
if ($customerAddressId){
       $address = Mage::getModel('customer/address')->load($customerAddressId);
if(strpos($address->getData(), 'address-you-are-looking')){

}
}

Open in new window

Thanks for the reply^

Where would I include this? I'm still learning Magento as you can probably tell but I need to have a form with name, address, email etc fields that I can fill with the result of the search query...

I guess I need a starting point to build from if you can help?
