Search Not Working in Messages App

Galaxy S21. The "Messages" app is my primary text app. I used to be able to search for a word and a list would propagate with every instance of that word in every text message I ever made, going back years.

Now, I will only get one or two search results (if any), only going back a short time. I’ve searched the ‘net and see complaints of this problem going back several years across many devices. The same old suggestions (clear cache, uninstall and reinstall app) are all ineffective.

Has anyone solved this issue?

Thank you.
