Cells.Find just in Column C?

Is there a way to tell this to just search in Column C?  and how would I capture a failed find?

Range("C:C").Select
        Cells.Find(What:=TargetCatCode, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
        LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
        MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

Dim rngFind As Range
Dim TargetCatCode As String

Set rngFind = Columns("C").Find(What:=TargetCatCode)

'OR
Set rngFind = Range("C:C").Find(What:=TargetCatCode)

'OR

Set rngFind = Range("C:C").Find(What:=TargetCatCode, _
                                LookIn:=xlValues, _
                                LookAt:=xlWhole, _
                                SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _
