It is a metaphor, meaning that one has something with him, but he tries to find it somewhere else.

It like a chinese idiom :Look for a horse on horseback
It has a traditional story :There was a man called Wang San in the past.He want to earn big money by doing business.Taking a sum of money with him,he joyfully gets to the market.Wang San thinks these little donkeys are not bad and that he should buy some.
"Sir,i'd like to buy a few donkeys and sell them in my home village.Do U think it's profitable?"
  "Of course, it is .If it's not ,U just come back to me ."
hearing this from the donkey seller,Wang instantly bought five young donkeys.
