Do you have the ReservesNeedReturns system preferences set to
"Automatically mark holds as found and waiting when a hold is placed
specifically on them and they are already checked in." ? If so, you
may running into a known bug
(http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=4319). If
the only available copy is marked as "waiting" (i.e. the item has been
allocated for a hold), the search results page says it is not
available to hold.

The patch attached to that bug report fixes the problem in the staff
client but not the OPAC.
