I've got a comment already: Try to search for a range which is the closest to the position within the selection range that matches the passed in text.

I think the problem with findPlainText is that the result range might not be the closest or includes the position we passed in. 

e.g. we want to search for the second "the" in "the car is the fastest in the world" at offset 12 (at "h" of the second "the"), findPlainText might return the range of the first or third "the" depending on the range and direction we passed in.
