Do you mean U+46D2?

Yes, first you look at the number of strokes in the radical ("speech"),
which is 7. These characters are located in U+46AE -- U+4729 (note that
the simplified version is arranged next to the traditional one, even
though the number of strokes is different), just next to radicals "horn"
and "valley", which also have 7 strokes.

After that you count the number of remaining strokes, which is 5, just
next to other characters with 5 additional strokes, U+46D1 and U+46D3.
