My take away from answers so far is "A script will be required."
Not necessarily, the trouble is: "find" is so vast, you can
spend hours in the manual to search for adequate option for
your specific need, and end up writing a script, instead of
having found "the proper option".
I don't think "find" itself is the problem.
Debian seems to do some 'black magic' to conflate "standard output" and
"standard input". Otherwise a pipe command would be required between
"find" and "grep".
