Getting Back Missing Finder Searches (today, etc)

When I first opened the Lion finder, I was disappointed to see the "Today, Yesterday, Last Week" searches missing. Sure, you can use "All My Files" and set "View Options" to arrange by date, but it doesn't work as well as "Today" (specifically because it doesn't look into my downloads folder).

In Lion, the searches in Leopard and SNL are there, just not visible.

If you open /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app >(show package contents)Contents/Resources/CannedSearches -- some of the previous searches from 10.6 are there. Just drag the "Today" icon into favorites. Goodbye 'All My Files'

I cannot stand that it is missing. I create things and put them in different places on the hard drive. When I go to attach to an email or upload to a server, I loved being able to go to things I created or updated TODAY or YESTERDAY and know they would be there. Now I have to fish around and look.

Makes it not so good. I am looking for a work around.

Still not working

For me this solution did not work. I'm finding folders and applications, even a couple movies and pictures, but a lot of my documents are not showing up. At first I thought it was because I was saving files in my Dropbox, but even if I save in Documents 'Today' can't find the items. AND, to make matters worse, when I tried to 'Show Search Criteria' I was unable to save and now the Today has no function at all

Help anyone?

The solution can be found here:

Simply save a search in All my Files with a filter for all the items modified in the last 24h. The save dialog will have a checkbox to include this in the Finder Panel.
