Oh my!!   You will need to find out if she claimed herself or if she said "someone else can claim me" on their return. This question is in the My Info personal set up section in the beginning. 

If she claimed herself and you want to claim her as a dependent, she will need to amend her return and after the IRS is completely finished with her Amendment, you can file your return.
