Awkward sentence - "he couldn't find you" or "he was not looking for you"

I think this sentence is not correct at all.

"He didn't use to find you"
(a valid sentence) marked incorrect. Reported.

To mods - we don't use "find" in continuous/progressive tenses as it describes an instant event, not an action. If this refers to a single occasion, then it should be, as LukeMadhan suggested, "He couldn't find you"

So annoying when a contraction (wasn't in place of was not) is marked wrong. This should be fixed.

I agree, although I recognize that the imperfect is always difficult to render in English.
