"Où es-tu ?" is formal and "Où t'es ?" is familiar. "Tu es où ?" is somewhere in between.

If the situation is formal, wouldn't vous be used instead? (t'es = TU es)

*Correction - I meant to reference "Es-tu" above, about using "etes-vous"?

Good point, but the tu/vous opposition mainly depends on the addressee. The choice of formal/familiar speech depends on the speaker and the situation. For example: a teacher is generally someone who uses formal speech / good grammar when addressing their students. It doesn't mean that the teacher will automatically say vous to the students. As a teacher, I say tu to my students but I use formal language. When I speak to my sister, I say tu also, but I can use familiar language.
