Does Finding API Work in Sandbox?

Does the Finding API work in Sandbox? I have attempted findItemsByKeywords and findItemsByCategory calls in Sandbox environment, and always get returned an empty searchResult. I need to use Sandbox for Finding to get a correlated ItemID to use against the Trading API.

Hi It should work, however since you may not find relevant data because sandbox is a test environment, I'd suggest you to directly make a call in production for finding api. Thanks

I retried the Finding API against sandbox. I even created two test items using the addItem Trading API, I searched for those titles using the Finding API, and the API didn't return entries. My conclusion is that it doesn't work. Production for the Finding API works, however when someone is building an application with a complete lifecycle of API functionality, & he hasn't yet accomplished Certification, then having the Finding & Trading API work simultaneously in sandbox is a necessity to test the workflow of the app. Can you provide more help?
