I am practicing with the searchName function and it always returns false no matter what.

Here is my code:

func searchNames (#name: String) -> (found: Bool, description: String) { let names = ["Gwen","Alex","Marshall","Douglas","Carol"]

var found = (false, "\(name) is not a family member");"

for n in names {
    if n == name {
        found = (true, "\(name) is a member of the family")

return found

you have a syntax error here:

var found = (false, "\(name) is not a family member");"

that quote on the end might be causing some issues
