Help with some (not simple) LINQ

Hi, more LINQ woes. I really would appreciate some help. My code that doesn't work is below.
Thank you
John

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;

namespace ConsoleApplication348
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            List<String> numbers = new List<String> { "one", "one", "one", "two", "three" };

            String searchNumber = "one";
            var found1 = (
                            from x
                                in numbers
                            where x == searchNumber
                            select new { x }
                          ).ToList().Take(1);       //I want found1 to be a string and have value 'one'
            



            searchNumber = "twenty";
            var found20 = (
                            from x
                                in numbers
                            where x == searchNumber
                            select new { x }
                           ).ToList().Take(1).DefaultIfEmpty("not found");  //I want found20 to be a string and have value 'not found'

        }
    }
}

Hi again John, here's some template code.
            List<String> numbers = new List<String> { "one", "one", "one", "two", "three" };

            var found1 = (
                from x
                    in numbers
                where x == "one"
                select x
                ).DefaultIfEmpty("ONE NOT FOUND").First();


            var found20 = (
                from x
                    in numbers
                where x == "twenty"
                select x
                ).DefaultIfEmpty("TWENTY NOT FOUND").First();
