You have got your priorities very wrong in your assumption.Both dark matter and dark energy were not things that anyone expected to find and no one ever "looked" for them. it was just that the observations of the universe showed discrepancies pointed to the existence of these things as the simplest solution to the observational anomalies. It was not until these things were shown by several different and independent types of observations that they gained wide acceptance. It was quite a fight. Scientists are more active looking for alternative solutions but the confirmations of the observations keep rolling in!
