WMI "Select" query for a local user account that EXISTS?

I am seeking a WMI "select" query that I can use to determine whether or not a local user account on a workstation exists.

For instance, a query that would evaluate TRUE if the local account "JohnDoe" existed.  This query would be used for targeting GPOs and Group Policy Preferences.

Any help is appreciated.

Something like this:

Select * from Win32_UserAccount Where LocalAccount = True and Name = 'JohnDoe'
