Search bar isn't finding product

The strangest thing suddenly occurred; one product, at least only one that I'm aware of, is not appearing when using the site's search bar. The product is marked available and can be found on various collection pages. However, when it's searched for in the site's search bar, the product does not appear. Instead, only the products that mention the missing-search product are shown.

I have done the following to troubleshoot the issue:

Deactivate product - save - reactivate product - save

Remove from online store - save - add to online store - save


Any advice?

If you're using an app for search, I would contact the app developers.

If your search is built into the theme, I would contact the theme developers.
