Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Courtney Love says she could have found the missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370, the singer shared via social media.
Love posted a photo supporting her findings on Facebook and Twitter on Monday, saying, “I’m no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick.” She then posted a link directing to Tomnod, a digital crowdsourcing platform using satellite imagery.
She continued, “[My] prayers go out to the families #MH370 and its like a mile away Pulau Perak, where they “last” tracked it 5°39’08.5″N 98°50’38.0″E but what do I know?”
The 49-year-old rocker said she has found the spot herself, telling the Daily Intelligencer, “I went to the satellite site and just uploaded tons and tons of pictures. I really doubt aliens took it. It’s got to be somewhere. I’m a little obsessive.”
Meanwhile, Tomnod has checked out the spot even before Love discovered it and has since ruled out the possibility. Love’s efforts were acknowledged, but a spokesperson said, “Although it is still an interesting clue, it is looking much more like the other boats operating in the region.”
Love is only one of the many people who took heed to Tomnod’s plea to help locate the plane. On March 8, Malaysian Airlines flight 370, along with 239 passengers, mysteriously vanished in thin air, leaving no trace behind.
“I saw an article asked people to help search on Tomnod.com so I decided to give it a shot,” the Hole singer said and then explained why she thought she has found the missing aircraft. “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.”
She added, “I hope they find the plane, I pray they’re still alive, it’s sad and my heart goes out to all those involved. It’s the least I can do.”
