Basic JavaScript - Profile Lookup

Help! I don’t understand why my code is not being marked as correct, even though the console output is correct.

// Setup
const contacts = [
  {
    firstName: "Akira",
    lastName: "Laine",
    number: "0543236543",
    likes: ["Pizza", "Coding", "Brownie Points"],
  },
  {
    firstName: "Harry",
    lastName: "Potter",
    number: "0994372684",
    likes: ["Hogwarts", "Magic", "Hagrid"],
  },
  {
    firstName: "Sherlock",
    lastName: "Holmes",
    number: "0487345643",
    likes: ["Intriguing Cases", "Violin"],
  },
  {
    firstName: "Kristian",
    lastName: "Vos",
    number: "unknown",
    likes: ["JavaScript", "Gaming", "Foxes"],
  },
];

function lookUpProfile(name, prop) {
  // Only change code below this line
  let foundContact = false;
  let foundProperty = false;

  for (let i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++) {
    if (contacts[i]['firstName'] === name) {
      foundContact = true;
      if (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
        console.log(contacts[i][prop], typeof(contacts[i][prop]));
        foundProperty = true;
        break;
      }
    }
  }

  if (!foundContact) {
    console.log('No such contact');
  } else if (!foundProperty) {
    console.log('No such property');
  }
  // Only change code above this line
}

lookUpProfile("Bob", "likes");

Writing something out to the console isn’t the same as returning a value.
