Were or Are?

"Au cas où vous vous demanderiez où elle est, elle est allée au marché." Sorry if this sounds a silly question, but does the above translate... in case you are wondering or were wondering?

Bonjour Pauline, Literally, it's "you would be wondering," which we'd never say in English. Both "you were wondering" and "you are wondering" are acceptable.
