How to fix facebook people search?

Facebook people search: Every time I search for a name I get the message:
"No results found for your query.
Check your spelling or try another term."
Internet searching has found a lot of people with this problem, but not solution that I could find. What gives?

Say I search for "Tom." There will be a dropdown box of Tom's, usually either people I'm friends with or people none of whom are in my network or are plausibly the person I'm looking for. When I click on the search icon to the right of the box it takes me to a list of famous Toms' official facebook pages, with below that results from posts by friends, and below that "people you may know." When I click on the people search filter to the left I get the error message in a yellow box, and below that a list of people I may know. This has been happening on and off (mostly on) for months. What's going on?
