Search warrant affidavits and inventories are typically filed in the Circuit Court Clerk's Office in chronological order and are often identifiable by the location to be searched or the item to be seized.

Try going back to the Clerk's Office and describing when the search happened. Knowing the address of the place searched would also be very helpful.
