My first guess would be that when you rebooted into single user mode, your
/usr partition wasn't mounted so find wasn't accessable.
Not sure how you managed to "rebuild" the machine and still have find missing,
but I can't really guess that without knowing what you meant by "rebuilt".
Is /usr mounted?
