C text file for storing and searching file with name

I made a program which adds , deletes and searches the contacts on the basis of their names. the add works file but the search function says "no record found" even if i enter a name which is present in the text file. am i wrong with the while syntax? can anyone help me fix the code? ive searched books and web the whole day and i still cant seem to debug it. any help would be much appreciated. the search records starts at line 131 . thank you!
