First of all, LatestFolder is not declared, even though you return this object. Also, you don't make provisions for the case when no folders are found. This information should be enough to fix your code.

Updated my question. I declared LatestFolder as a global variable in my program. still i am not getting correct result.

Of course it won't be a solution. Now, if no folders are found, it will return initial value. You could initialize it with 0, which could indicate "not found". You may have other problems. Use the debugger; the problem is pretty simple...
