The search for Malaysia Flight 370 continues to expand by air, sea, and land.

Investigators have searched both of the pilots' homes. Authorities say they have evidence someone deliberately disabled the plane's communication system.

More people are joining in the search for the missing plane, including some in Southern Colorado.

Kathy Hodge of Colorado Springs spends about two hours a day searching satellite images for the missing plane. She's not officially part of the search; Hodges uses the website to sift through satellite images from her own home.

"That's the main thing here...trying to help these families get some answers. I know if it were my family, I would want anybody to step in and do whatever they could to help," said Hodge.

Hodge was shocked when she thought she found the missing plane in one of the images she searched.

About 20 hours into her search, Hodges says she spotted a plane in the Andaman Islands, between Myanmar and India. That is in the area where investigators are searching for the plane.

11 News contacted the website and they tell us the image Hodge found was a flight in the air and not a downed plane that was captured on the image.

Hodge tells me she will keep searching, trying to find clues in the mystery.
