When I do a search in the new Google Photos ap, I can only see places and things and not people. Anybody else experience this?

No I do not tag people but that doesn't matter as the new Google people search can be done without tagging.

I thought you were talking about photos you already had indexed, it does not pick up all the faces in a general search. I tested it and it does not pick up all the faces. I have quite a few photos that it skipped.

You need to enable the frature. If you don't see the People section, that means this feature is not available in your country or you turned it off in settings.

Open the Google Photos app on your mobile device or go to photos.google.com on a computer.
At the top left, touch or click the menu icon > Settings.
Next to "Group similar faces," turn the switch on.

Any resolution to this ? I'm in the U.S. and I have "group similar faces" turned on under settings.

I cannot search even the most basic items (cars, dogs, snow, etc.). I have no specific choices that some up to search for things or people. Only one search bar. All results are returned with "No results found".
