I find it remarkable that 'seeking', which is far more natural than searching, is not accepted.

Nor is "looking"

Did you try "looking for?" "This is the key that I was looking" is clumsy at best, and sounds wrong. The same with "searching"

It's seven months ago since I wrote this, but as a native English speaker, I'm pretty sure I would have written "looking for".
