mourning dove nesting

i had a pair of mourning doves make a nest in my hanging flower basket on my front porch. at first both birds were in the nest but since the egg was laid there has only been 1 is that normal for 1 dove to be no where in sight all day? one used to sit in the nest and the other would be on the power line right at the edge of the street. now its gone my children like to watch them from the window and they are nervous that one of them is "missing"
