search for special character in different fonts

I have some hugh document where some text is highlighted with --> which gives an arrow in word. The character is ^0224 in the font Wingdings. Now, the document was formated with different fonts.

I try to Change the character 0224 back to wingdings and make it bold. Some of those arrows are still there and have to be bold too.

Can I search for those characters in one search or do I have to do this in several passes - one for each font?

This is my Version at the Moment:

With Selection.Find
.MatchWholeWord = True
.MatchCase = False
.Execute FindText:="^0224"
Selection.Font.Bold = True
Selection.Font.Name = "Wingdings"
End With
