System user and the search API, not finding some sites

I am really not sure whether this is the right place to post or where to post this question. Please let me know if it needs to be posted elsewhere.

I have been using the search API for a query as TYPE:"st:site" that is running through a schedule JS webscript using the Execute
ScriptJob, which I believe is running as the system user. The problem I have is that it is not finding all the sites I am expecting it to, and I am struggling to identify why it is missing some and not others. The same query running through the search on the node browser returns the sites I was expecting, which I assume is because it is running as admin.

I have seen similar behaviour in the past but have got round it by running as admin user, as it was in a Java webscript.

My question is shouldn't the system user have access to everything? And if so what might be going wrong in this case?

Thanks in advance

Garry
