Both of her parents are alive although she is sent away from them until her 16 th birthday.
While taking a psych class I learned that the theme of one parent often is used so that the audience connects to the character more. Plus there is a Freudian aspect to it. Girls want their fathers to themselves so like heroines who don't have mothers competing for the fathers love.

I think it was very poignant in Treasure Planet when Silver asks Jim "Your pop wasn't the teaching type?" and Jim replies "No, more like the leaving and never come back type". And then in the music montegue they show Jim's dad leaving and little jim running after him. It so sad It seemed more relatable than most Disney movies missing a parent.

"By not having a complete family, it represents a catalyst or a dramatic turning point that forces the character to grow up. . . . It's that crossroads where we all have to decide if we're going to mature or remain a kid forever. And the thing that gets that going in many of our stories is the absence of a parent or the death of a parent."
-- Don Hahn, Disney producer
