First be sure that the same name (display vs user) is being used on your dashboard and list in your viewer.  There may be a difference due to how you have your preferences set inworld.

Otherwise, it's been known to happen due to a glitch or bug in the website software communicating with the inworld software.  Some people see no friends on their dashboard.  A JIRA (notice of a problem) has been filed about it with LL.  You can track the progress here.

This happens when that friend is hiding their online status from you.

That causes their name to be totally removed from your dashboard when they are online - a bit silly because you can easily tell who is hiding their online status.
