At this point, I'm inclined to go with Lyanna and Ned smuggling her out of Winterfell unknown to Robert. The whole business with the rumor of Lyanna eloping or being taken by Rhaegar is likely to have infuriated Robert and he may well have reacted in a murderous rage and thought of Lyanna as a whore having betrayed him. Ned is certain that Robert would "kill them all" when he contemplates telling Robert about Cersei's children. I think the whole reaction to Dany as a whore and the killing of Ellia's 'dragonspawn' is a replay on Robert's unresolved rage over the Rhaegar/Lyanna love story. The irony is that Robert may well be Jon's father.
It would make sense to me that they would travel to White Harbor on the way south from Winterfell. House Manderley might have been involved in harboring them given the naming of Wylla Manderley. My guess is that Lyanna travelled under that name.
