Are you logging into a database with an account, then arriving to a log-ing layout for volunteers?
If that's the case, just simply put two global fields on the layout for first name and last name and a search button below them. Then perform the search in the background (hidden window) and then take the user where they need to go.

You can create a separate layout with search fields for the First and Last names. Then have a button to 'Search' that can put the search criteria into variables that can be used to perform the search.
