AW profiles in Limbo?

Received an email from a provider the other day and clicked on the profile link within the email; sure enough, the profile appeared.

But not possible to find the same profile through standard searches.

Is this a thing? Profiles in suspension. Usable by providers but not (usually) viewable to punters?
What do you mean "By standard searches2?

If using county location, perhaps she has nly listed towns/cities only.

I know of a few profile which won't get picked up this way.

In order to "catch" it in your search, try Proximity tab, and use within XX miles of a certain Post code.
