As mentioned by Joe, "Create Address Locator" has now been replaced by "Create Locator" Geoprocessing tool. The look and feel is also a bit different.

Please check this post to get an idea AGP v 2.8, Locator tool: which values for mandatory fields?

@GuillermoMartinez-Espinosa ; how are you searching for the tool?  You should be able to click first on the Analysis Tab, then select Tools and then search in the Geoprocessing Pane for Create Locator:

That should just about do it....

I apologize for not explaining what @JayantaPoddar did.  Create Address Locator was deprecated at ArcGIS Pro version 2.6.  It did have it's glory days: I dispatched countless 9-1-1 calls for years using the old style locators.  However, the new style locators have gained a solid maturity level and truth be told, I don't miss the old ones at all...

That should just about do it....
