Adding the search control to the map:

var searchLayer = L.layerGroup().addTo(map);
//... adding data in searchLayer ...
map.addControl( new L.Control.Search({layer: searchLayer}) );
//searchLayer is a L.LayerGroup contains searched markers

Short way:

var searchLayer = L.geoJson().addTo(map);
//... adding data in searchLayer ...'map', { searchControl: {layer: searchLayer} });

AMD module:

require(["leaflet", "leafletSearch"],function(L, LeafletSearch) {

    //... initialize leaflet map and dataLayer ...

    map.addControl( new LeafletSearch({
        layer: dataLayer
    }) );
