I your sentence you have written were looking instead of looked. Since you have added the word "were", it automatically becomes a past tense(past participle/past continuous or something like that,am not sure :P ), so its the correct usage in that sentence. But in your 2nd sentence "walking around Hidden.." , that is grammatically wrong, you cant use a present continuous tense for something that has already happened.
