Sorry, my question was incomplete:
How are you? = Comment vas-tu ? or Comment tu vas ?
So, is it Comment allez-vous? Commet vous allez?
Where are you? = Où es-tu?
So, is it Où êtes vous? Does it sound normal?

Yes, it is "où êtes-vous?" (Note the hyphen in the inverted form).

"Comment allez-vous?" Should do the trick. The inverted form is the one I hear most often used.

Thank you Chris, it is strange that I have to try hard to find questions with "vous" form! Even google translate uses "tu" form! I know google is not the best way to learn, but whatever makes me understand this confusion.
