'He' is correct. The software may have gotten confused by the string of objective pronouns. Think about changing the last part. 'Now He was gone' has a present time adverb, 'now', followed by a past tense verb. Changing 'now' to 'then' keeps all in the same time reference.

Thanks for catching that! I did switch tenses. Good work.
