We can duplicate this on version 13 & 14, both Mac and PC. It appears to be related to local indexes getting messed up.

If you search (locally, not on server) a folder where everything is normal, Body is an option in the drop-down. Re-name the folder, and try again - Body does not appear. Closing and re-opening Thunderbird does not bring back the ability to do a Body search on this re-named folder, nor does a folder repair. Re-naming back to the original name will bring back the Body option. Or you can unsubscribe-resubscribe to the re-named folder, then Body is again available.

Is this about Ctrl+Shift+F? If so, this may be related with ticket 543416.

perhaps in a way, yes per bug 543416 comment 5 "I have indexing turned off and I am not using local synchronization."

I can reproduce this precisely with the steps of comment 0. (on a gmail account)
After the folder rename, the folder sync property is disabled.
Restarting THunderbird doesn't help.
