Earlier that day...
Hello everybody!!!

Is this phrase correct? "earlier that day"

Where were you earlier that day?

Yes, it īs good. Here īs a context in which it would be used.
A:  I went to the market Tuesday afternoon.
B: Oh, where were you earlier that day?

As Bruce implies, to use "earlier that day," both the speaker and listener need to think about the same day. Another possible context is a police interrogation.
