At the time of his disappearance Dylan ran a carpet installation business. He was in the process of moving to Salem, but never made it there.
Shortly before he went missing Dylan had completed a thirty day drug rehabilitation program. His family believes he is deceased, and that his disappearance may have been drug related.

On December 4, 2018, Dylan Sanford spend the night at a residence on Market Street in Somersworth, New Hampshire.
Between 6:00-7:00 pm on December 5, 2018, he left the Market Street residence to get cigarettes at a local convenience store (either the Borderline Beverage store or the Stateline Mini Mart). Dylan Sanford never returned.
Later that evening he called the mother of his four year old son, telling her he had accidentally overdosed and had to be revived with Narcan. This is the last communication anyone had with Dylan.
There has been no activity on Dylan’s cell phone since he went missing.
Three days after Dylan disappeared his wallet was found in a yard about a half mile away from where he was last seen. The only thing inside the wallet was a medical identification card belonging to his son’s mother.
In September 2019 graffiti messages appeared throughout the Tri-Cities area of New Hampshire, claiming Dylan had been murdered and identifying three men as being responsible.
Somersworth police investigated the messages and interviewed those who were named as being responsible, though they say their investigation remains a missing person’s case rather than murder investigation.
In September 2019 authorities searched a residence in the 100 block of Franklin Street in Somersworth after receiving a tip that Dylan was there. However, their search came up empty.
