You need to do it from 50 BLOCKS away for it to count, and your saying youve been doing it from above them? Chances are, either the game registers only from the ground, OR you simply may not have measured correctly from the top (Just so you remember, the mobs locations from you is based off the block the bottom half of their body is In, same goes for the player, so make sure not to base it off their head or the block their standing on.

Edit: I measured wrong originally, heres a better explanation ^

    This is incorrect. Minecraft wiki says: Blocks are arranged in a grid, each cell of which is 1 cubic meter [...]. Besides, player character is about 2 blocks tall - if a block would really be 3 meters, then they would be 6 meters tall, which would mean the measurements in meters would be nonsensical. (Have you confused meters with American feet?) – Dragomok Apr 19 at 7:45

    No, sorry, it probably didn't, since I remember reading this during Minecraft's beta. – Dragomok Apr 19 at 7:50
