I have a log file something like bellow

How do I test if an ID exist and type = ABC?

log.txt

ID|TYPE|DATE
123|XYZ|2017-03-07
123|ABC|2017-03-08
124|XYZ|2017-03-08

PHP

<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
$Data = explode('|', file_get_contents("log.txt"));
trace($Data);
$ID = 123;
if($Data[$ID]){
  echo "found $ID";
  }

function trace($arr){
    echo "<pre>";
    print_r($arr);
    echo "</pre>";
}//end trace
