I linked my windows 8  to my gmail account and sync email, contacts and calendars.

contacts from my gmail appear in my "people" but when I search for people, some do not show up in the search results. 

Some people do not show up in a search results when I search with the first name or the last name.
Some do show up when I search by first name but do not show up when I search by last name.

How can this be fixed?

Thanks

I followed the link instructions, my apps are both synced and up to date, but the issue is still not resolved.
 
The apps I have the issues with are native windows apps  “people” and “mail”
 
BTW, I also tried to un-link and then lined again my gmail account, but it did not solve the problem.
 
One of the contacts that does not appear in people search or when I writing emails is my wife, which appears in all of my address books gmail, linkedin, live. It actually does not even find me when I search by my last name...(search does find my when I search by my first name)

Has this been resolved? I'm having this same problem - I just got the Surface yesterday and this is one of the frustrating issues I've notice thus far. Any guidance would be great!

thanks,
