Does anyone know if there is a tool that allows you to conduct a search in ArcMap using Northing and Easting?

I am a bit confused now...Eastings are the X coordinate and Northings are the Y coordinate

Do you mean the functionality provided by the

Go Too Tool ?

As above, like the 'Go To' Tool for XY coordinates.

Cool, I didn't know that, I thought (because of the state plane, blah blah stuff) that they were possibly different in context and therefore could not be treated the same way/use same tool.

Thank you!

If the data frame's coordinate system is set to the same coordinate system of your easting/northing values, you can set the units of the Go To XY tool to the same unit (aka meters or feet) and search that way.

Below is a screen grab of ArcMap 10.3 (development, but it's the same in 10.2.x). I set the data frame to use NAD 1927 BLM zone 11N which uses US survey feet. When I open the Go To XY Tool and select the pulldown on the right side, the first unit listed is that of the data frame's coordinate system. If the data frame was using a UTM instead, it would be meters instead.
