😟 Test failed with timeout [InfoSecurity-Project2]

Tell us what’s happening:
FCC Test failed with timeout :worried:

You can send a DELETE request to /api/replies/{board} and pass along the thread_id, reply_id, & delete_password.
Returned will be the string incorrect password or success.
On success, the text of the reply_id will be changed to [deleted]. (Test timed out)

Only that test fail with a timeout, as you can see on the screenshot. I tried to optimize my code, but still, unable to validate it.

Your code so far

app.route('/api/replies/:board').delete((req, res) => {
      const thread_id = req.body.thread_id
      const reply_id = req.body.reply_id
      const delete_password = req.body.delete_password
      if (isNotClear(req.body) || _.isNil(thread_id) || _.isNil(reply_id) || _.isNil(delete_password)) {
        console.error("[Error with request body]")
        return res.json({error:true, message:'Error with the request body'})
      ThreadModel.findById({_id: thread_id}, (err, thread) => {
        if (err) {
          console.error('[Error while finding thread]', err)
          return res.send('incorrect password')
        const replyIndex = thread.replies.findIndex(reply => reply._id.toString() === reply_id)
        const reply = thread.replies[replyIndex]
        if (_.isNil(reply)) {
          console.error('[Error while reply thread]', err)
          return res.send('incorrect password')
        bcrypt.compare(delete_password, reply['delete_password'], (err, result) => {
         if (err || result === false) {
            console.error('[Error: incorrect password]', err)
            return res.send('incorrect password')
          thread.replies[replyIndex].text = '[deleted]'
          thread.save().then(result => {
            console.log('Reply successfully deleted');
            return res.send('success');
          }).catch(err => {
            console.error('[Error: while deleting reply]', err);
            return res.send('incorrect password');
