The Θ+ was searched for via the K+p→π+X reaction using the 1.2 GeV/c K+ beam at the K6 beam line of the KEK-PS 12 GeV Proton Synchrotron. In the missing mass spectrum of the K+p→π+X reaction, no clear peak structure was observed. Therefore a 90% C.L. upper limit of 3.5 μb/sr was derived for the differential cross section averaged over 2° to 22° in the laboratory frame of the K+p→π+Θ+ reaction. This upper limit is much smaller than the theoretical calculation for the t-channel process where a K0* is exchanged. From the present result, either the t-channel process is excluded or the coupling constant of gK*NΘ is quite small.
