Windows 7: Outlook search feature not working properly

Outlook search feature not working properly

The search feature is not working properly in Outlook 2013. For example, when one searches for "Smith" they would receive a message that states, "We couldn't find what you were looking for.", but if you manually check under "S", the contact will be listed. However, it only affects a few specific people. Finally, this is not under my contacts, but a co-workers who is sharing their contacts, calendars, etc. with me.
