See: FindNext

Use this method to find to the first shape in the layer matching given criteria. Using _query param we can narrow the result of the shape searching down to the minimum. This should speed up our process of locating a desired shape.

To locate a shape, simply choose an existing layer and use FindFirst method of with a proper extent and a SQL query as a WHERE clause.
