If you lost the passport, did you file a police report? Do you have any proof it was lost? You will have to try to reconstruct the trips and present evidence in the form of tickets or other evidence. You should always seek assistance of a good immigration attorney before filing with CIS. Yes they can check and there may be some record of your entries or departures into /out of the US. You can do Freedom of Information Act requests with various federal agencies, which I a good attorney can assist you with. Do a FOIA esp with Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
