Found that Large string/HTML attributes are not queriable (repository restriction), and therefore do not show up.

When I checked it was a custom attribute and Medium HTML for me.

The attribute "description" is of type "Large HTML", which can be queried by using the "full text" query condition only. Unfortunately when using the full text search, you cannot restrict the search into a certain attribute. This is similar to what we have discussed in this post.

Yes you can.
- Click on Work Items > New Query,
- Add Condition Attribute "Description" Contains "Some-text"

I did a quick check on a 4.0.3 setup and Attributes of type Large HTML are not listed in queries in 4.0.3. Will check further
