Didn't get a regex search object

Can someone help me out with this? I keep getting this error even though I already did all of the corrections to my code I could find in the forums.

import re

string = '''Love, Kenneth, kenneth+challenge@teamtreehouse.com, 555-555-5555, @kennethlove
Chalkley, Andrew, andrew@teamtreehouse.co.uk, 555-555-5556, @chalkers
McFarland, Dave, dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com, 555-555-5557, @davemcfarland
Kesten, Joy, joy@teamtreehouse.com, 555-555-5558, @joykesten'''

contacts = re.search(r'(?P<email>[-\w\d+.]+@[-\w\d]+),\s(?P<phone>\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{4})', string, re.M)

You are SO close! There is a period missing from the second character set in the email pattern (the domain side).

Post back if you need more help. Good Luck!!

Adding in the missing period worked, thanks!
