Gmail search on iPhone doesnt find messages that should definitely be there

I find my iPhone doesnt seem to sync properly with my Gmail. Whether all my mails get downloaded, I'm guessing they do but hard to say for sure since I have 200+ unread emails. For now lets assume that they get downloaded fine.

But when I'm searching for something it wont show up. For example I emailed myself something about my friend Tony earlier today. When I searched for it in my phone later in the day the only Tony references were 6 months old. But I've received emails probaly 10+ times in the last couple weeks with his name somewhere in the body.

This has happened lots of times with lots of different words.

Can anyone advise?

Thanks
Dan

If you're using the native Mail app, delete the account from the device and then reconfigure it.
