Finding nearby images from a search in lightroom mobile

When you do a search for keyworded images or a visual search and the system shows you an image from a shoot, there is no way to simply go from the search results to a nearby image that you know was shot at the same time. I should be able to click on an image and use the contextual menu to ask to open that image’s enclosing album and show me that image in the album.  It should say something like “show albums including this image” and then you choose which album and it opens the album with that image in the center of the grid with all the images surrounding it so you can find other images that were not caught in the search.  Also it should allow you to just show that image in the grid of all images in time shot order so any image that was shot at a similar time would show surrounding it.   
It makes no sense to be able to find an image and then not be able to go to the rest of the images that were shot with that image or that you have collected with that image.   This seems like a feature request but it is also a glaring hole in the search ability of the system. Classic has a way to do this in the contextual menu. But Lightroom on mobile is sadly missing any ability to do this.

Oh and why on earth is there no search bar for albums like there is for collections in classic. The fact that the organizational structure does not sync between classic and mobile is annoying enough, but then when you have a hundred or more collections that are unorganized and you can’t search a word to find them, that makes it so hard to find what you are looking for.  endless scrolling around looking for that image I want to show someone is NOT what we want in a mobile app that is intended to allow us to show images and share images at the drop of a hat...

Album name search at the top of the Albums panel would definitely get my vote, as I'm always hunting to figure out which folder I put them in. Create a separate request for that one and I'll vote on it.
