TestComplete using Appium with EvaluateXPath

When trying to use EvaluateXPath with appium I get an error back stating:

 

"Unable to find the object EvaluateXPath(<xpath for child object>). See Details for additional information. 14:39:19 Normal 10.83"

 

But the appium logs show it was successful and found an element

Directly on the browser I am able to validate the query by using document.Evaluate

 

 

 

 

document.evaluate(
  "<xpath for child object>",
  $x("<xpath for parent object>")[0],
  null,
  XPathResult.ANY_TYPE,
  null
).iterateNext();
