Searching for empty checkbox only works after deselecting

I created a new custom checkbox field (tag) in an existing project with only a single checkbox. If I check the custom field the following query works:

1.Tag is not Empty

This returns all incidents where the checkbox has been selected. If I run the following it returns nothing:

2.Tag is Empty

If I now go into an incident, check the box and then uncheck it, search no. 2 returns that incident that was checked/unchecked.

Did you do a reindex after creating this new custom field?

Ahh nope. Will do that and let you know the outcome. Thanks.

That worked. Simple when you know how! Thanks
