Um to be honest if you have maxed out search and you cant see it then clearly your not high enough level to be thier. :?

not true. You can have a maxed out search without any feats or ability modifiers, and its will max at +43 at Level 20, so a +50 search will be ~success not possible~

you know, you could grab skill focus and greater skill focus? if i remember right, it give 9 points in the skill.

My rogue can see the traps, and he only has a 30ish search.  :P

He can disarm them too!

Yep, so can mine, who also has a thirtie-ish, but there are some random traps in Alhoon's that i am convinced has a much higher DC.

And Rixula, you noticed I said without feats?

Skill focus gives +2
Greater skill focus gives another +2  instead of the +4

Well that is atleast what I was told, might only be that way for hide and move silent skill.

So, a character with max skill ranks in search, an 18 INT (achievable by buff maybe), Skill Focus (Search) and Greater Skill Focus (Search), and Sharp Eyes
will have a +33 modifier on the rolls and a natural 20 will see DC 53 and below. This is why if the DC of some checks is in the 50s as speculated in this thread, I believe its too high. How many characters are going to have 3 feats dedicated to seeing traps and secret doors, you think? And even better question is, will this character even be able to convince others of his use as a trap finder only, because the build is likely to be a combat light one.

Went through Alhoon's again, but it was low spawn and no traps of death were there, so it appears completely random as Søren said.
