I have a table with about 10,000 rows.

I imported about 2000 rows into this table last week. All seemed to be going fine, however when I try to search for these new items using the simple syntax:

SELECT * FROM FreeTextTable(tablename, columnname,'search_string')

It only seems to return results from before the import.

Could the index be full, or could something have stopped sql from indexing further?

I would definitely check your Full Text Search Service and make sure it is on. It sounds like it hasn't updated the index in awhile.
