This paper considers simple polygon search problem. How many searchers find a mobile intruder that is arbitrarily faster than the searcher within polygon art gallery? This paper uses the visibility graph that is connected with edges for mutually visible vertices. Given visibility graph, we select vertex u that is conjunction in for . We decide 1-searchable if and 2-searchable if . We also present searcher`s shortest path. This algorithm is verified by varies 1 or 2-searchable polygons.
