Outlook 2010 Search Not Returning Most Recent Emails

Hello,
I have Outlook 2010 (office 64 bit) with windows 7 (64 bit). Recently, my search on Outlook no longer return the most recent e-mails. The first e-mails listed are at least two weeks old. I have disabled all the add-ins just to be sure that there was no issue there. But still have the problem. Any ideas?

Thanks,
