In that sense ,It's not out of the realm of possibility .
Missing people are pressumed dead quite often , I.e. Jimmy Hoffa , without a body or even valid evidence a crime was committed , so its not impossible . There would be conspiracy theories and about him being alive so I don't buy that everyone would just except it , at least not in Gotham .
However, this falls into the category of suspend disbelief , its only a movie. And to be fair he was declared dead in BB without a body. Again, its one of those things in the film that could have been handled a bit better at the end imo, but it doesn't damage the film for me.
Possibly, though Bruce was out of the public eye for almost a decade and other Gothamites nearly as rich and famous as he was undoubtedly disappeared too. The people of Gotham probably have more on their plate than speculating about what happened to an eccentric, semi-retired billionaire anyway.

Cynicism is not maturity, do not mistake the one for the other. If you truly cannot accept a story where someone does the right thing because itís the right thing to do, that says far more about who you are than these characters. - Greg Rucka
