Try setting up a new profile in Outlook, attach the PST to this profile and then re-index Outlook.

Here is a Microsoft Article to assist you.

In case this is not about data corruption, but really a search issue, I recommend you to install Mailstore Home, index the files correctly (make sure you select all available filters, like pfd, word, excel etc), and search it after the indexing is done (try also with correctly placed *signs).
Officially, the program is only free for personal use.

You will not only get your results faster and more accurate, but also when there's a hit from within the file attachments (as I said earlier, the pdf's, word, excel etc), something Outlook is not capable of.
