    Question Question: find shelter

    Hello, I have a question.
    It has to do with "finding shelter"

    This is the sentence as I wrote it:

    With a box full instructions, he travels towards the city he has been studying all his life. He is send out to find shelter at David Wilde, an expelled history professor.


    what is the correct form?
    a) find shelter at David Wilde, an expelled history professor
    b) find shelter with David Wilde, an expelled history professor
    c) find shelter by David Wilde, an expelled history professor
    d) something else?

    Thanks a lot!

    However, your sentence should be,


    With a box full of instructions, he travels towards the city he has been studying all his life. He is sent out to find shelter with David Wilde, an expelled history professor.


    You can find shelter in a building, but you always find it with a person.
