I'll attempt to correct my own syntax errors:

put false into found
search$="1,2,3"
sort field "myList"
repeat with x = 1 to the number of lines in field "myList"
         If char 1 of line x of mylist is among the items of search$ and 
char 2 of line x of mylist is among the items of search$ and char 3 of line 
x of mylist is among the items of search$ then
                 If found then
                         delete line x of field "myList"
                         beep
                 else
                     put true into found

               end if
         end if
end repeat
