in the current version of Skype, only indeed a general search (by username, display name or full name, online number, and registered email address) is possible. If you wish to have a search function with more specific search parameters, you may need to install an older version of Skype (ideally 4.2).
The new Skype .. there really is no way to search for people anymore. You used to be able to go to contacts--> search for contacts, and search by location, etc., but they've cut much of that functionality out. Now, you can really just search people you already know ... by typing in their exact email address or exact name, so the search tools in Skype aren't too good anymore, and don't allow for too much social networking unless you already know them from a separate social network.
It is written contacts and recent up left of skype type a name you don't have in contacts and it is written add a contact and click it this is the only way to add contacts
You can find best contacts on linux based skype, I had installed skype on Ubuntu and it provides tremendus facility to search most relevant skype contact.

What is the version of Skype program installed on your computer? In Skype go to Help -> About Skype.
Closing this thread as the subject has been discussed at length. Subsequent posts offered links to external, unofficial search sites that failed to pass muster with the anti-virus/malware/spyware software I use, so they have been removed to protect the safety and security of the Community.
