well, gpg is only capable of verifying signatures if you have the public
key of the person.

try using 
--keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve 
in you gpg.conf 

man gpg:
     This option enables the automatic retrieving of keys from a 
     keyserver  when verifying  signatures made by keys that are 
     not on the local keyring.
