This option seems to have moved to the settings dialog. Where on the first tab one can set the offline accounts to appear.

The option in settings dialog was available in earlier versions, but I'm really missing the on click entry in the menu. It's really annoying to change settings to show offline contacts, send a message to the contact and after that go to settings again and hide offline contacts.

Empathy user experience goes from bad to worse with every gnome-shell version.
