Re(5): Listener No. 4422: Buried Treasure by Poat

I'm happy to join with those crying foul. It is possible to find SEARCH AREA in the grid with a couple of variations. Close reading of the preamble tells us that the letters of "area" are consecutive in a straight line, which they are in one reading of the phrase (though in reverse of course). So the equivalent HARE within the diagram is not in fact in a straight line, but according to my way of thinking does not need to be. I regard highlighting within the grid as the superior solution (but then it's what I did, so I would....). In other respects a fine puzzle of course.
