Like many others, Courtney Love's gone to, a site where people are asked to tag possible clues such as wreckage, oil slicks and life rafts in satellite images to help find the plane.

Nine days after flight MH370 went missing, the Hole frontwoman took to Facebook to share her theory, pointing to an ocean-view photo and claiming, "I'm no expert, but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick."

"I saw an article asked people to help search on so I decided to give it a shot," the actress explained her claims to New York Magazine.

"I figured a plane would still be leaking some fuel so I searched for signs of an oil slick. I found one and there appeared to be an object nearby. I don't know if it is the plane or not, but I figured I'd do my part and bring some awareness to the site, for the sake of all the families involved," Love added.
