This is not possible.  TELNET only sends the site and address, it does 
not send the user name hense it is impossable to get it.  What I would 
reccomend doing is sending a message to root@ the system she is on.  And 
asking them to kindly check the logs for who telneted at the time she 
telneted.  You should then be able to find out who she is.
