The documentation for the plugin says:
To create the search index you have to set up a cronjob (or scheduled task under windows) that runs the dokuwiki/lib/plugins/docsearch/cron.php. You can also use online cron job service https://www.easycron.com to trigger the script and a tutorial at https://www.easycron.com/cron-job-tutorials/how-to-set-up-….

The search just finds documents in the index. If you create the index, upload a new file and search for the file, you won't find it until you rebuild the index.
Did you do that?
