Find and replace search throws NullPointerException

Issue

Find and replace searches performed in the Classic UI Site Admin (/siteadmin) fail under some content paths.  An error similar to the one below is logged in the error.log: 

01.06.2017 11:36:28.122 *ERROR* [0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 [1496331387272] GET /content/geometrixx/en.find.json HTTP/1.1] org.apache.sling.engine.impl.SlingRequestProcessorImpl service: Uncaught Throwable

Cause

This can be caused by storing nt: unstructured directly under cq: Page nodes instead of storing them under the jcr: content (cq: PageContent) node of pages.

For example:
Wrong:
/content/geometrixx/en/footer/copyright

Correct:
/content/geometrixx/en/jcr:content/footer/copyright

Resolution

Move the problematic nodes under the jcr: content subnodes of pages instead of storing them directly under the cq: Page node.  Storing content under the cq: PageContent (jcr: content) node structure is the best practice approach.
