You're in for a long wait for that one

Otherwise, why not just say hardly anyone or very few have seen him.
Exactly. That way it lets us know Batman did not throw in the towel directly after that night. But we didn't get that. We did get many lines that outright say it's been 8 years since anyone has seen Batman in Gotham.

No getting around that. Everything else is just baseless conjecturing.
