GPG can't find a public key

Used search tool and GPG is returning nothing.

Need to use another person's public key to encrypt a message to him. I have the key but don't know what to do with it.

Can someone tell me where to start?

    Hi Rob,

    what exactly do you have?
    A file which contains the public key?
    If so, open GPG Keychain Access, click on import in the toolbar and select the file containing the public key, click import (or OK)

    Let us know if that works or if you need further assistance.
