The first thing I'd check if whether it is related to stemming or stop
words filtering controlled by cfg.d/indexing.pl.

For example, we've had a case where a user was unable to find an item
with "GNSS" in title because they entered "gnss" and indexing.pl
converted that search term to "gns" assuming that the "s" at the end is
plural. :-/

So examine the general_log of MySQL queries executed when you perform a
search for the missing item - check whether they contain any
suspiciously "malformed" conditions.

There are a couple of items that don’t seem to be indexed for a general (search bar) search, but will be returned in results when you do a specific search (for example, by author). I’ve tried reindexing the individual item, but have yet to try fully reindexing the site.
