How to find a "lost" mouse pointer on the mac - I know the Windows equivalent.

If you lose your mouse pointer in Windows, you change a setting in MOUSE control panel and then can press CTRL and rings will appear around the mouse pointer.   What/where is the MAC equivalent?
(See graphic for Windows setting location).

"Hit Command+Tab to switch back to the Finder or to another app, then switch back to the active app

Summon"the Force Quit menu by hitting Command+Option+Escape, there is often no need to actually force quit anything as just summoning the menu is often enough to make the cursor return

Quit and relaunch the app, or quit all apps if the cursor is gone" - http://osxdaily.com/2013/07/19/disappearing-mouse-cursor-mac-os-x/

PS: the next OS update includes a feature for this. When you lose the mouse while using Mac OS 10.11 El Capitan, just shake it to make the mouse bigger and more obvious.

Thanks to all for your help.  what I really need is the concentric circle.  The reason for this is because I give presentations to large groups and they can't find the mouse unless I activate the concentric circle.

There are a few options .. of which Mouseposé is one.

MouseLocator is FREE and simpler than Mouseposé - http://www.2point5fish.com/download.html

OSX has some Accessibility features one of which is to simply increase the mouse pointer size which makes is easier to see
otherwise there is a Zoom to Mouse feature you could try
Under Universal Access in System Preferences you need to have Zoom enabled.
Whenever you cannot find the mouse just press ⌥+⌘+= and the screen zooms in to where the mouse cursor is. Then you can zoom back out with ⌥+⌘+-.
This is not ideally what you're looking for  but another option
