I think you are asking about Molero-13. There is no Molero-1397.

When I search for P* Molero or Pasqual Molero, I see this profile in the search results. If it wasn't showing up earlier, it might be because of a failure of the search database to refresh properly. I've seen this happen occasionally. Your recent edit to the profile may have "kicked" the database and caused it to refresh.

Ah, you are talking about Maria Romero-1397. (I figured that out from the profile creation date.)

When I searched for Maria Romero, there were 874 matches and only 100 were displayed. Her name wasn't in that search results list, but when I narrowed the search to birth date of 1670 +/-12 years, she was there.

Further to my comment:

When there are many results, the "first 100 results" that appear on the search results list seem to be a fairly random selection. Unfortunately, if you search by date, you will get a different set of results, but it won't necessarily be the earliest 100 results.

OK - so much for that idea. This is definitely showing up as an error.

Sorry I have no idea.
