Fox is not a search engine. You would need to use
PmWiki's pagelist capabilities.

What could work is a searchbox directive for every field, and set up
each with the appropiate parameters to search the group and the
specific PTV.

What does not work is combining a search for different values in
different PTVs, like searching for first name 'Joe' and address line
1 containing '164'. You could search for 'Joe', but no combination of
PTV values.

I am not aware that a recipe can do that, maybe there is one.
