Profile Lookup Challenge halp plz

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

Hi guys! Can you help me determine what’s wrong with my code? Or should I just scrap it and start from scratch? Is it bad code? :sweat_smile:

  **My code so far**

// Setup
var 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
for (var i = 0; i < contacts.length; i++) {
    if (contacts[i].firstName == name) {
        if (contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)) {
            return contacts[i][prop];
        }
        else {
            return "No such property"
        }
    }
    else {
        return "No such contact";
    }
}

// Only change code above this line
}

console.log(lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes"));

When can you say that you have found no matching contact? Return statements immediately stop your function, interrupting everything.
