My controller seems to have trouble finding the model

in my \app\controllers\business_controller.rb:

class BusinessController < ApplicationController
  def search
  @businesses = Business.search(params[:businessname], params[:city])
  end
end

in my \app\models\business.rb:

class Business < ActiveRecord::Base
  def search(businessname, city)
    search_condition = "%" + businessname + "%"
    find(:all, :conditions => ['name LIKE ? AND city = ?',
search_condition, search_condition])
  end
end

When I run my app in firefox, I get:

NoMethodError in BusinessController#search

undefined method `search' for #<Class:0x59c69cc>

You've created an instance method, but you're trying to call it as if
it was a class method (and you probably meant for city to be the
second bind variable in your call to find)
