You gave to select Catalog,Search option in Visibility field. Thats reason new added products are not displaying in search result.

    Ok. Duplicate any OLD product and rename that. Check if that loading in search? In this way you can compare setting as well. – Jai Jun 16 '17 at 10:58
  • I have duplicated old iteam and renamed, reindexed and cleared cache but it is still not displaying so I don't think it is related to the settings. – Greg Jun 16 '17 at 11:05

I found where the issue was. As I am using a 3-rd party extension (Sphinx search by Mirasvit) the configuration was not properly set. Previous employer made really difficult configuration where search engine was set to be hosted on a external server, not maintained by anyone. Changing it to build in search engine solve the issue.

You need to confirm following points with your new products according to Store View,

Status = Enabled

Visibility = Catalog, Search

Stock Availability = In Stock

Qty = Greater than 0

Categories = Category associated

And also make sure same setting applied for Website and Store view you can check through the Choose Store View option.

Hope it will help
