They carried her back to the Denali's place and stayed there till twenty years later where she stayed with the Cullens.

Isobel was born and raised in Forks by her parents, Geoffrey and Helen Swan, and the younger sister to Charlie. Geoffrey and Helen were both in their late forties when they had Isobel; they were overwhelmed when they had a second child after Charlie. She stayed close to her parents and her brother. She was friends with Billy Black, Harry Clearwater, and Quil Ateara IV, even to this day.
After graduating from Forks High School, she had left Forks to go hiking, and ended up in Denali, Alaska in 1986. Her scent was caught by a passing nomad in the vicinity, and had tracked her down. The nomad taunted her before ending up bitting her to finish off Isobel, but heard two other vampires coming. He left Isobel dying of blood loss and in pain.
When the two vampires arrived, it was Carlisle and Esme Cullen, Carlisle checked her and noticed she was in transformation of becoming a vampire. They took her back to the Denali coven's house where they are currently residing in.
During her three days of agonizing pain, in Forks, her parents had gotten worried about her, as she wasnt checking in, like she suppose to. Her mother's Alzheimer's disease and her father's arthritis had worsened over the fear of Isobel being dead.
Three days later, Isobel had wokened up and met the Denali and the Cullen family. They were extremely surprised on her control when she was hunting and coming near by a group of hikers. She had ran the opposite way to get away from them. Thinking that was her power, Edward disagree saying that her mind is cloudy and static, not able to focus on her thoughts. Eleazar agrees and saying that she has a mental shield.
One day, Emmett teased her about not being a newborn vampire, Isobel had glared at him, and Emmett fell onto his knees, clutching his head. Angered by this, Rosalie attacked Isobel, and she had used that method and she too fell to the ground. They had found out about her powerful ability; the ability to attack the mind. She apologize to Emmett and Rosalie, not knowing about her power, and they both forgiven her.
Isobel was mentioned in Twilight by her brother and her niece.
