If your daughter was sentenced, it would mean she most likely was on probation. One of the terms and conditions of her probation, would be to complete a stay in Rehab. Since she left, she will be in violation of her probation and most likely a warrant will be issued for her. If she is found at your home, the chances are low that you would be responsible and held accountable for her actions. Unless you knew the police were searching for her AND aided her in escaping or hiding, most like you will not be in trouble for speaking with your daughter. Moreover, if you were never informed of a search for her, it would be hard to prove you knowingly facilitated her attempt to avoid law enforcement. It is probably best for her to return to Rehab and get help or she will most likely be spending time in jail.
