Error: Similarity Report 21% but "No Matching Sources"

I've had this happen a few times. I have a student essay with a positive similarity score (in this case, 21% matching), but when I click on the percentage, it says "There are no matching sources for this report). 

I am not filtering results. 

What is the issue here? Is this a false positive? 
Did the student find a way to mask the matching portion? 

I am using Turnitin through Canvas.
