How to get a user by email in a JIRA plugin

When writing a plugin for JIRA, how do you get a user, or just their username, given their email address?

It seems that you're supposed to use the findUsersByEmail method in the UserSearchService interface

https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/7.0.2/com/atlassian/jira/bc/user/search/UserSearchService.html

But how do you get an instance of this class? Or a singleton of it?

To get most of class instances ComponentAccessor

UserSearcherHelper userSearcherHelper = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(UserSearcherHelper.class);
