What or who is missing in this puzzle?

HINT:

Complete the word search and you will miss something or someone.

• Mind providing a transcription for people who want to solve this in an alternate form? – Deusovi Oct 20 '17 at 14:05
• How can I do that? @Deusovi – D. Mellow Oct 20 '17 at 14:26
• @D.Mellow You should be able to type it out like <blockquote><pre>WDCVAIOH...</pre></blockquote> You won't need double-spaces for line breaks when typing in that and all characters will be fixed-width, so they will line up nicely. – Apep Oct 20 '17 at 15:39

*Does not include a final answer

Divided by categories:

Deadly sins (7 + 1 historical)

4 Elements

5 Senses

The Beatles

• I edited the question, now it has an answer that you already know, because Ringo should not appear in the word search, but I accidentally include it! (Also corrected the misspelling) Thanks everybody! – D. Mellow Oct 20 '17 at 16:30

Corrected with help from Jaap Scherphuis:

What's missing could be

One of the seven deadly sins. So far I see WRATH and PRIDE (GLUTONNY is present as a misspelling of gluttony; unclear if a mistake or if this is the "missing" word)

There are a number of potential

red herrings, including SIGHT, TOUCH, SMELL, TASTE, HEARING (five senses) and EARTH, AIR, WATER, FIRE (four elements)

• Some of the other sins are in there as well (pride, gluttony). Could it not just as well be a missing one of those? Or maybe Umami? Maybe wind is not present, but air is? – Jaap Scherphuis Oct 20 '17 at 14:32
• Certainly possible - I haven't found all of those. I did search for my answer word and I'm fairly sure it's not in there, but it could be missing items in more than one category. – Dan A. Oct 20 '17 at 14:35
• @JaapScherphuis Also, did you actually find gluttony? So far I've only found a misspelling (glutonny). – Dan A. Oct 20 '17 at 14:36
• You're right, gluttony is misspelled. I have now found air starting at the top right corner, so you have a full set of the 4 traditional elements. – Jaap Scherphuis Oct 20 '17 at 14:38
• Nice. I'll update my answer. Also - I'm new to puzzling: are we to delete comments that reference a possible answer since they aren't behind spoiler tags? – Dan A. Oct 20 '17 at 14:42
