Look for Type>Find Font. From there you can select any document font and replace it.
Thank you Rob. When I tried 'Find Font', there doesn't seem to be a way to upload the font I have on my computer. Is there a button I'm missing? The only options are Change, Find First and Find Next which seem to toggle to all the missing font locations. The Change option sends me to the Indesign list of fonts. Any advice?

Where is the font? I think that what is going on here is that you have the font file on your computer, but you haven't installed it, right? It doesn't appear in the dropdown list that SRiegel circled in yellow?
The font probably has to be installed on your computer. If you're using, um, CS5 or later, you can put it in "Document Fonts" folder that's in in the same place as the InDesign file that needs the font. If you do that, then close and re-open the InDesign file, then InDesign should be able to find the font there.
Otherwise, you need to install it - since you say "PC" I'm guessing you're using Windows, so you should be able to right-click on it and select "Install Font." Once you've done that then it should appear in InDesign's font list, so long as nothing goes wrong.
(There's a lot that can go wrong; InDesign is incredibly picky about fonts.)

If the font you want to use isn't listed in the InDesign list then it isn't active. There are third party utilities for managing/activating/deactivating fonts, otherwise the font has to be in a system font folder or the InDesign application Fonts folder. You might need to restart ID after copying a font into a Font folder.
Yes, I have not installed the font. I'm using Adobe CS6 on a Windows operating system. Where is the "Document Fonts" folder or is this something I create? Also, when you say right-click and select "Install Font"- What do I right-click on? Thank you for your help!

The font file.
If you copy the font file into InDesign's Fonts folder (/Applications/Adobe InDesign CS6/Fonts) it will be available to all InDesign documents.
There are a wide variety of ways to get InDesign to be able to use a font. Rob handily clarified my suggestion - to right-click on the font file and install it. That makes it available to all of your programs.
If you put it in the InDesign Fonts folder that he suggested, only InDesign can use it.
Or, if you make your own Document Fonts folder, only that one InDesign file will be able to use it.
