find_emails not working

This challenge is not working.

I've noticed the direction ask us to create a function find_emails but within the sample snippet it has find_email.

I am sure this code works as I tested in the editor but here the error message does not make sense. You can clearly see my find_emails function. I even change it to find_email just in case it might be an issue. Still same error.

import re

def find_emails(string):
    return re.findall(r'[-\w\d+.]+@[-\w\d.]+', string)

# Example:
# >>> find_email("kenneth.love@teamtreehouse.com, @support, ryan@teamtreehouse.com, test+case@example.co.uk")
# ['kenneth@teamtreehouse.com', 'ryan@teamtreehouse.com', 'test@example.co.uk']

Think you just need to wrap the section after return in parens return (re.findall(r'[-\w\d+.]+@[-\w\d.]+', string))
