Isn't it understood structure "chercher à," thus an indirect object would be used? I put "Il lui cherche" on a kwizz and got it wrong.
This relates to:Replacing nouns with le, la, l', les = it, him, her, them (direct object pronouns) -

the verb "chercher" takes a direct object and means "to look for".
Je cherche mes clés. -- I am looking for my keys.
There is a version of chercher which uses an indirect object "chercher à" and it means "to have the intention".
Je cherche à faire mes devoirs. -- I intend to do my homework.
But this is more of a special case. When chercher is used in the sense of "to look for", it uses a direct object.
