I've repeatedly tried resetting Spotlight and deleting AddressBook-v22.abcddb, to no avail.
What happens is I type a name in the text search box and get absolutely no response.
Are you using iCloud? If so, then there is another database file located in the sources folder of that same location. If you sign out of iCloud completely via system preferences and then sign back in, it should recreate the whole iCloud file which includes the database file for contacts.
