As a matter of fact, we do.  But in that case the search starts at the
document or collection (what we call a 'library') that you called the
query on.  (In our API, executing a query is a method on those objects.)
In our online demo, that I presume you used, the query is executed on an
arbitrarily chosen document, which happens not to be the one you wanted.

Try executing the trivial query "/" to see what I mean.
