Problems with Filter?

I’m trying to get filter to work with some text and so far no success at all.
Given large string: abcdefghijkTHISISMYTEXTTOFINDlmnopqrstuvwxyz
I want the text between THIS and FIND which could be anything like ISLJFKKDKLS
It’s OK to include the THIS and FIND in my result.
I’m thinking I need a wildcard character like * to get the information.
So if I try:
put "THIS*FIND" into tTarget
put “abcdefghijkTHISISMYTEXTTOFINDlmnopqrstuvwxyz” into tLargeTextString
put tLargeTextString into pText
filter pText with regex tTarget into tFilteredTextResult
answer "tFilteredTextResult = " & tFilteredTextResult
One might think this would work, but it doesn’t, and I get nothing for tFilteredTextResult
