Did Courtney Love crack the case? The 49-year-old singer claimed on Twitter Monday, March 17 that she may have found Malaysia Airlines flight 370. 

"I'm no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick . . . prayers go out to the families #MH370," Love wrote, with a link to crowd-sourcing service Tomnod.

She also posed a photo of her evidence, with a diagram of where she believes the plane to be. "Really? look closer? check it out @DR24 #MH370 and its like a mile away Pulau Perak, where they "last" tracked it," she captioned her photo analysis. Click here to see photos of Courtney Love.

Love told New York Magazine's Daily Intelligencer that she found the location herself. "Yeah I went to the satellite site and just uploaded tons and tons of pictures," she explained. "I really doubt aliens took it. It's got to be somewhere. I'm a little obsessive."

The rocker said she wanted to do her part to help locate the flight, which vanished on March 8, in order to help the families of the 239 passengers.

"I saw an article asked people to help search on so I decided to give it a shot," she told Daily Intelligencer. "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."

Tomnod, however, previously ruled out Love's possible location of the plane, saying, "Although it is still an interesting clue, it is looking much more like the other boats operating in the region."
