Anything missing in my code?

You're getting close, but there's a few issues yet.
It looks like there's a stray extra closing parenthesis after the first argument to
re.search. and the second argument should be the string to search in, with the flags as the third argument.
Then the pattern itself needs to be enhanced a bit, to account for the delimiters between the groups, and to account for names possibly including spaces.
