    What does "an late" mean?

    'Did you find the place OK?' is fine informally.

    People do say this, though it's obvious that they've found the place as they've arrived.

    Write okay or OK — not ok.

    My friend got to my apartment an hour late. So I ask him:

    Found the place ok?

    Is the above not OK?

    So it was supposed to be "an hour late".

    "Found the place OK?" is acceptable in informal conversational English. It is not a sentence.
