For the past few months, the Gmail app(both Apple and Android) & multiple browsers show 1 unread notification. The thing is that I searched everywhere for months on end and can not find this unread email. Can someone please assist?

I have a similar problem but it only shows on the icon. On the sidebar it doesn’t show any unread messages.

Found the solution in this thread: https://support.google.com/mail/thread/4672742?hl=en

Try this one in the search bar: "category:primary is:unread".
it was other category for me though: "category:updates is:unread"

What about searching for "in:inbox is:unread"? Does that find the unread message?

in: category:primary is:unread 
typing this exactly also worked for me. What a relief! I hated that little red number
