How to find an item by Primary Key in Eloquent, or throw a ModelNotFoundException exception if it isn't found?

Laravel: How to find an item by Primary Key in Eloquent, or throw a ModelNotFoundException exception if it isn't found?

Use Eloquent's findOrFail($id) method - this will find a model by its primary key or throw an exception.

  1.         $user_id=123;
  2. $user = User::findOrFail($user_id);
  3. // if it cannot find a row with $user_id as the primary key, it will throw a \Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\ModelNotFoundException\ModelNotFoundException exception

If you don't want to throw an exception if none was found then you should just use find() (which will return null if nothing is found.
