You are entitled to ask her to leave and change the locks when she is away. This is the case if they are paying no rent.
Otherwise you need to file and bring an unlawful detainer action with the Superior Court.
The process server will serve the complaint on your friend and your friend can be removed.
You will be issued with a writ of possession and your friend can be removed by the sheriff.
Please follow up if you need more information.
