Courtney Love may have helped solve the missing Malaysian plane mystery, having posted an image and geographical co-ordinates on her Facebook page.

Flight number MH370 has been missing since 8 March 2014, with searches for the aircraft having proven fruitless in the days since. The search was recently expanded, but ten days later, there are still no clues as to the fate of the plane or its 239 passengers.

However, Courtney Love may have solved the mystery, posting a photo on Facebook, which she seems to believe shows the location of the missing plane - sadly after crashing in the ocean.

"I'm no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick," she wrote on Facebook as she shared the image, sourced on Tomnod.com. "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?"

Fans of the star are hoping that her information is accurate, with one commenting underneath: "Swear to god if courtney love finds the fucking plane," and over 250 people liking the message, already discussing the CNN coverage of the rocker solving the biggest international mystery of 2014.

In other Courtney Love news, she has also added an addition date to her string of UK tour dates, taking place in May 2014. She will now perform an additional show at Newcastle's Riverside venue on 22 May, 2014. Tickets for the shows are on sale now. For more information, visit Gigwise Gig Tickets.

Below: 5 more unsolved mysteries for Courtney Love to get onto next

  • The Bermuda Triangle: This vaguely triangular shaped region in the North Atlantic Ocean is said to have been responsible for a number of missing aircrafts and ships over the years. Let's be honest - it's a big ol' urban myth, and the US Navy doesn't recognise it as even existing, but we could still do with getting Courtney on the case.

  • The disappearance of Amelia Earhart: The first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, Amelia Earhart's disappearance whilst attempting a circumnavigational flight of the world in 1937 has been the subject of mystery and fascination every since. She remains a feminist icon, just like Courtney. Maybe she's got some ideas as to what actually happened to Earhart?

  • The Zodiac Killer: The identity of the serial killer who murdered 5 people throughout the 60s and 70s in California has flummoxed detectives and experts. The killer famously sent taunting letters in code to press, only one of which has ever been successfully cracked. The case remains open to this day - enter Courtney.

  • The Mary Celeste: A major maritime mystery, ten souls seemed to vanish into thin air during a voyage on the Mary Celeste in 1872. The crew, the captain, his wife and their daughter were all aboard the ship, which was sailing for the Strait of Gibraltar. The ship was discovered unmanned and untouched a month into the journey, with not one person on board. Considering the incident happened 142 years ago, we'd say there's little chance of those missing still being alive, but if anyone can track them down, it's Courtney.

  • The Lord Lucan murder mystery: Very posh man and British peer Lord Lucan has been missing ever since the murder of his children's Nanny in 1974. Lucan allegedly attacked his wife, asked his mother to pick his children up, and visited friends before fleeing and never being seen again. It's still unknown as to what happened to the Earl, although there's many conspiracy theories.
