It's entirely possible that she was killed, along with the entire crew of the Phoenix Queen, and that somebody lacked the foresight to keep them from interfering.
Of course, it's also possible that they simply kidnapped her, and as a necessary part of the deception, it was decided that actually trimming six or seven decades off of Azula's physical age was easier than maintaining an illusion.
