The search function doesn't work in Lightroom!

I tried doing a Search multiple times and I found it doesn't work! As a test, I highlighted a folder with pictures titled with the word I searched on and got the message, "No photos matched the filter." I had selected "Any searchable field" and "Contains all." I used Windows 8.1 Search function and it found the photos very fast. I also highlighted the main Lightroom photo file, and got the same results.

What's going on with Lightroom 5.5? This is bad.

I would like to add that in Windows, it gave the appearance of finding the files or folders but in actuality, it didn't. I was able to find the photos and go to one using third party Explorer type software though.
