      You need to purify your DNA prior to running your gel. Salts and other impurities can interfere with the electrophoresis.

      😯 Never heard that. I use electrophoresis to purify DNA…

      As for the original question. Besides contamination of reagents by DNAse (it happened to someone I knew), there is no reason the DNA should disappear. The question is how much DNA in "all the mixture"? And did you had a purification step between the digestion and the dephosphorylation. If something went wrong at that step, that might explain your problems
