Multi party signatures on lease, one tennant leaves. What is liability of remai

My daughter leased an apartment in Raleigh,NC with a friend in 10/2000. The friend left the apartment without notice this week. My daughter remains in the apartment with rent paid through 1/2001. The lease was signed 10/2000 for 1 year by both tennants. Is my daughter liable to pay the full rental amount in lieu of the missing 2nd tennant? Both signed the lease & my daughter makes minimum wage income & cannot afford the burdon of full rental payment. She will likely move soon to less expensive accomodations. What are her rights as she has never defaulted on a rental payment in the past but is now faced with extreme frustration & no one to share the expenses. Thank you
