Anyone know of Jesus' lost years from the Nativity down to his ministry?

There is another way to look at this. In his home town, Jesus went to the Synagogue on Sabbath, and stool up to read. When he was done, people asked each other, "Is this not the carpenter's son?" It is just possible that they asked the question because they were not entirely sure, as if Jesus had, in fact, been gone a long time. It may be too much reading between the lines, but there it is...

I don't thnk the comment implies that they were uncertain about it.
The whole point of that story is the psychological one, that they could not believe in him as the one "sent by God" precisely because they were so familiar with him. If you've watched someone growing up as a child, it's more difficult to take him seriously as a great personage (there's a Monty Python sketch about that). The people in the other towns of the region, where he had not grown up, had no such difficulty.
So, if anything, that story is actually indirect evidence that he spent his formative years right there in Nazareth.
