How to add item to collection which is a property of a parent collection?

I am trying to add more items to Location property but unable to via Patch or Collect

ClearCollect(
    incomingPeople,
    {
        Id: 10,
        Locations: [{Geography: "UK"}]
    }
);

Clear(selectedPeople);

ForAll(
    incomingPeople,
    Collect(
        selectedPeople,
        {
            Id: Id,
            Locations: ForAll(
                Locations,
                {Geography: Value.Geography}
            )
        }
    )
)

Attempt 1 - fail

Collect(LookUp(selectedPeople,Id=10).Locations, {Geography: "France"})

Attempt 2 - fail

Patch(LookUp(selectedPeople,Id=10).Locations, 
// not sure what to put as 2nd param,
{Geography: "France"})

Another attempt - fail

 

Patch(selectedPeople
, LookUp(selectedPeople,Id=10),
{Locations2:ForAll([{Geography:"France"}], {Geography:Value.Geography})})

Got it to work 

 

Patch(items, LookUp(items, Id=ThisItem.Id), {Locations:ForAll(currentLocations, {Geography:Geography, Division : Division, Country:Country, City:City, ProvinceState : ProvinceState})})
