χαμένος στην αναζήτηση του εαυτού μου / χάθηκα ψάχνοντας τον εαυτό μου


Explanation:
The first option is more elegant than the second one, and is the one I'd use:
χαμένος (hamenos) = lost
στην αναζήτηση (stin anazitisi) = in the search
του εαυτού μου (tou eaftou mou)= of myself

You don't need to say "to find" here since you use the word "search".

The second option is a more literal one:
χάθηκα (hathika)= I was lost
ψάχνοντας (psahnontas) = while searching for
τον εαυτό μου (ton eafto mou) = my self
