This spell can target a specific creature you know; or it can target a specific type of creature (such as a human or unicorn) that is the closest individual to you, but you need to see that type within a close range of 30 feet Creature at least once.

If the named or described creature is not in its original form (for example, while being affected by the spell effect of a polymorph), the spell cannot locate the creature.

If at least 10 feet wide flowing water runs between you and the targeted creature, blocking the path between them, the creature cannot be targeted by the spell.
