Answer
James,

Your looking for a return air grille, or a return air filter grille, the return air grille goes over the wall, and the filter is located somewhere else. The return air filter grille has the filter in the grille, as an example Hart & Cooley makes the return air grille # L88-178 or L88-696 in a 14X24X1 inch. You should not have to much trouble finding one on line.
