Twenty-five nations from around the globe have contributed resources to the ongoing search for Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, which disappeared 11 days ago. Not only do Malaysian authorities have help from Interpol and the FBI, they can rest easy known that Courtney Love is also on the case.

The 49-year-old singer took to Facebook on Monday to share satellite images of the ocean she obtained via Tomnod, a mapping service allowing everyday people to look for the plane.

"I'm no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick," Love wrote. "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?"

Love told the Daily Intelligencer that she's "obsessive" about the mystery of Flight 370's disappearance, but admitted that she's no aviation expert "per se."

"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," she said.

"I figured a plane would still be leaking some fuel so I searched for signs of an oil slick," she added. "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."

There's no word on what anyone thinks of Love's amateur analysis.

Meanwhile, Malaysian officials have made contradicting claims about when the plane's communications system was disabled -- before or after the co-pilot's last message to air traffic control.
