Funny, I can find your games and mine just fine. Remember, though, that the database is (at least, AFAIK still is) outdated, so you'll only find games played before a certain (unknown) date, by people who were above 1400 at that time. If the player was under 1400 back then, none of their games will be in the database (yet), even if they played games above that rating later on.
