DNA would be very similar among all the tribes of Israel, and would also be very similar to general Canaanite DNA, as we note from the work of Michael F. Hammer, et al., “Jewish and Middle Eastern Non-Jewish Populations Share a Common Pool of Y-Chromosome Biallelic Haplotypes,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, May 9, 2000. This article eatures an MDS plot of populations based on Y-chromosome haplotype data (fig. 2), showing varied Jewish populations (Ashkenazi, Roman, Kurdish, North African, Iraqi, Iranian, and Yemenite) to be virtually indistinguishable from non-Jewish Palestinians, Syrians, Lebanese, Druze, and Saudi Arabians. Ethiopian Jews and the Lemba (Bantu/Venda speakers of South Africa) were outside this tight grouping, for whatever reason (perhaps a more discrete sampling needs to be taken -- from the Buba subclan of the Lemba, for example).

First we need to agree whether they are physically lost or lost as to identity. If it is the latter we may very well have their DNA but don't know it.

Do we even know what the ancient Jewish/Israelite DNA looks like? Wouldn't the DNA of the tribe of Manasseh have some fairly major differences due to the fact that Joseph was married to an Egyptian woman?

That is kind of alluding to. We may have lost tribe DNA amongst the people of the world. We just don't know what it looks like.

The DNA of the lost tribes should be found in the north countries and by migrations in The British Isles and from there fairly well diffused throughout the world.

If you accept the marriage qualification of "not of the Canaanites" for the passage of the rights of the firstborn heir ship to Ephraim then you realize that Joseph did not marry an Egyptian. Well not a bloodline Egyptian anyway. Had he done so, he would have been excised from Jewish history and his name but a hiss and byword. Jewish Legend provides one option- Dinah's daughter, Josephus a potential other - Hyksos - a nomadic semetic people. I vote for Dinah's daughter.
