Face recognition fails - face region is wrong

Lightroom Version
Operating System: OSX 10.12.6 Sierra
Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): LR classic cc 7.1

LR did not detect faces in many of my pictures. Upon checking I found that the face region in these pictures covers the entire photo, and is marked with a ? But there are no entries in the "unnamed people" section. The pictures are not difficult, all have clear distinguishable faces. I attach one sample showing the face region and the ? mark.

Is there a way to re-scan pictures in a folder, all folders? delete face regions?

Grateful for any suggestions. Edwin
