Disculpe, ¿se encuentra Tomás?


Explanation:
In the English version you are asking if Thomas is at home and most of the proposed answers are giving a kind of "polite order": Can you put me with Thomas?
I don't think in Spanish you use "please" when asking for somebody unless it's not a question but a request to put you through with the other person.

Hope this helps!
