The findutils package contains programs which will help you locate files
on your system. The find utility searches through a hierarchy of
directories looking for files which match a certain set of criteria
(such as a filename pattern). The xargs utility builds and executes
command lines from standard input arguments (usually lists of file names
generated by the find command). The locate utility scans a database of
filenames and displays matches. The updatedb utility builds the
database for locate.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on

system. Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up
'findutils' from the 'Base' category (it should already be selected).
Note that downloads from sourceware.org (aka cygwin.com) aren't allowed
