In Gossip Girl, American TV series, Nate has ignored the phone call of Sage's, who is his girlfriend. Finally He picked up the call.
Sage said, "Finally, I have been trying you all afternoon".
Do native speakers say I have been trying to call you?
If I have been looking around for Tom, once I find him, may I say, "Finallly, I have been trying you all morning". Or should I say, "I have been trying to find you" ?
