"Search this site" and "Find an item" does not return same search result

When searching in the "Find an item" field in the document area I get no results from the included documents. When performing the same search in the "Search this site" field, I find the documents. I have tried to figure out why quite a while now... Can someone please assist me?!

"Find an Item" strictly limits it's search to the available fields of the list. The search box will search both fields and content. If you files contain the term you are searching for then they will show up in the results, whereas with the "Find an Item" they will not.

Yes, but the issue is that the "Find an item" does NOT find the documents, but the more overall search form "Search this site" does find the docs. 

If I can see a document called "Project Plan" i the list, and types "Project" in the "Find an item" search field, I should get a result. But I don't. There must be a solution for this issue. Some settings should be changed or an index needs to be updated?!

Thanks for the help!
