This question already has an answer here:
Stella isn't here, did she tell you where she was going?
Stella isn't here, has she told you where she was going?
That is, should simple past or present perfect tense be used? It is an exercise from a grammar book and it seems to suggest (I don't have the answer key) that present perfect is the answer as it is also talking about the current status ("Stella isn't here"). But "did you tell" sounds better to me somehow. What do you native speakers think?
