    No. The first phrase is good. I'm afraid I couldn't find you. We do not use "for my fault". I have issue of "obviously" also. easily perceived or understood; clear, self-evident, or apparent. To be easily perceived, the speaker would be visibly handicapped or inappropriate dark sunglasses. 

    This is the intended communication.

    "I'm afraid I couldn't find you. It was clearly an error on my part."

    The use of the word fault is responsibility for an accident or misfortune.

    I tried splitting to two sentences and made the grammar fit.

    "I'm afraid I couldn't find you. It is obviously my fault."

    Replace “for” with “it’s” and it’s just fine.
