If you are interested in a commercial set of fonts that work well  
together with Times, you might want to look at the MathTime Pro fonts  
at pctex.com.

I believe the symbol you are looking for is included in the set,  
specifically in the Math Extension set. They have a PDF flyer with  
examples of the fonts so you can evaluate whether or not it something  
you are interested in.

Note that the MathTime Pro fonts are not free, but there is an  
educational discount. I have no connection to their company, but I  
have purchased their fonts and personally find value in them.
