Hey Robert,

There isn't a method for searching. There is btw a wp.getPosts for getting blog posts but it doesn't have a search parameter.
I created a ticket for it: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/21623 but to get into WordPress it will take at least till the end of this year when 3.5 will be released.

Only thing you can do now is create your own method.
