This is performed by saying search and then naming the specific location that you intend to search (such as search backpack, search pockets, or search hat). The player being searched must present all stealable items from that location to the searcher. The searcher can then take what he wants and then search other locations. The searcher may also describe any other interaction with the character. ( I turn over your body to see if you have anything on the back of your belt.)
