That's likely because there is another layer that's boundaries are set within the location you want to select. Just select the layer in the timeline.

I think you have a large layer at the bottom of the layer stack. A larger layer selected anywhere in the layer stack will prevent you from selecting any smaller layer above or below the larger layer.

 

You should see a small four-cornered selection icon appear under the selection tool (v) when you hover over the object in the Composition panel.

Use Shift + / to see the entire composition, press Ctrl/Cmnd plus - (the minus key) to show more of the composition frame, scroll down the Layer list to see what layer is selected, lock that layer, and see if that does not solve your problem.
