Unhappy google search on my moto g not finding contacts

When I use google search and type in a contact name, I used to get that contact at the top of the search results and be able to click through to dial that person. I don't know exactly when that stopped working but for the last month or so, the only way for me to search contacts is directly from the contacts app. In the phone search tab of the google settings app, the contacts app is not even listed, which -I don't know that it ever was- I find incongruous. All I see is Chrome, Play Books and Play Music.

This is an important basic functionality that is broken for me, anyone have any ideas?

I have Kitkat 4.4.3 and the following linked sync accounts:
facebook
linkedin
youmail
whatsapp
jabber
skype
meetup
+3 google accounts

(in case one of those providers is causing a known issue)

Any help is appreciated.

Go into your Google app
Menu > settings > phone search

Make sure contacts is checked

as mentioned, that's not one of the options in the list

looks like a known issue, of sorts...
