Original estimate field missing on sub task?

I'm trying to add time estimates to sub tasks of stories that will then add up to the estimate for the story. I have time tracking on the sub tasks, so I can log time and it will adjust the remaining time but I cannot set an original time estimate.  Using the 'wheres my field?' option produces no results

Have you got the time-tracking field on the create/edit screens for the sub-tasks?

This helps you get 90% of the way Remaining Estimate Time Tracking and Stories. How to Apply Time to Subtasks during Planning

Then you need to add the time tracking field on the create/edit screen. The easy way to do this is create a sub task in your user story. Then select configure field tab (top right), and select where is my field. This will then give you a link in order for you to be able to enable the time-tracking field on the sub task edit screen. You will not be able to estimate in story points and add the original time estimate.
