There is no option to redo the face recognition research.
If a person is ignored in the initial research, then there's no way to do facial recognition again, unless it is manually (picture by picture)

I find a solution for remaking face recognition.
If you deleted the face recognition patterns, and want to rescan all the pictures of a specific directory :
- copy the metadata into the pictures files, in order to keep them ;
- delete the pictures from Lightroom data base ;
- re-import them.

Lightroom 7.3 is now available

This version of Lightroom contains a much improved face engine and the ability to re-index photos for faces. See for details.
