Searching for a UUID

Hi All,

Would appreciate a bit of advice, a pointer in the right direction.

I would like to alter the search function so that it also searches a nodes UUID. So standard search box where anything can be entered, but it also searches the UUID for a node. Using Drupal 8 which is the best way to go about it? Search API or extending SearchController ?

Drupal version:
