Using Directory Searcher to FindAll GroupPrincipal objects that have a certain description

I'm basically trying to figure out if I can (and if so how) use the PrincipalSearcher object in .net to find all GroupPrincipal objects that have a description property matching a certain value...

For Example lets say I have a GroupPrincipal object for the AD Group abc123  and its description property if Group_Alpha_One...

Well what if I want to find any and all groups with he description value for the Group Principal of "Group_Alpha_One"

PrincipalContext ctx = new PrincipalContext(ContextType.Domain, "US");
            GroupPrincipal grp = new GroupPrincipal(ctx);
            grp.Description = "description value";
            PrincipalSearcher ps = new PrincipalSearcher(grp);
            ps.QueryFilter = grp;
            PrincipalSearchResult<Principal> result = ps.FindAll();
            int i = 0;
            List<string> s = new List<string>();
            foreach (Principal p in result)
            {
                using (GroupPrincipal gp = (GroupPrincipal)p)
                {
                    s.Add(gp.Name);
                }
            }
