Add to Your controller that if view page  is not exist then redirect to 404 Like:
 
if ( ! file_exists('application/search/'.$page.'.php'))
	{
		show_404();
	}

Open in new window

It's seem in your CI  there is controller folder which have news.php controller and have method (function) view, Now in your model where you fetch news using newsid or some parameter/querystring you need to check if the news is exist or not Like:

if (empty($data['news_item']))
	{
		show_404();
	}

Open in new window


Again which version of CI you are using? It's better to refer you CI tutorial
