I mormally set the search for value at the class level then check for it 
in the TreeModelForeachFunct like this:
         public void DoSearch(string searchstring)
             _SearchForValue = searchstring;
             MyListStore.Foreach(new TreeModelForeachFunc(ForeachSearch));

         private string _SearchForValue = string.Empty;
         private int _SearchColumn = 1;
         private bool ForeachSearch(Gtk.TreeModel model, Gtk.TreePath 
path, Gtk.TreeIter iter)
             if(_SearchForValue == MyListStore.GetValue(iter, 
                 // do what you need to do with the found value or row
                 return true;
             return false;
