Tiny error in the audio dictation?

"¿Dónde estará ESTA chica?" is what I hear in the audio, rather than "ESA".

future tense?

How does "could" translate from "Dónde estará esa chica?" Isn't that future tense?  Would "¿Dónde podría estar esa chica?" be more correct?

Hola Garry

The simple future tense is used in Spanish sometimes to speculate about the present. This sentence is reflecting that. Here is a lesson that talks about this. Have a look here.
