With thousands using interactive map search website, Tomnod, one university-goer posted a satellite shot of what he believes is the missing Boeing 777 on sharing website Reddit.
The clear snap shows a large jet flying over the jungle but the image is yet to be verified.
According to satellite firm DigitalGlobe, which owns Tomnod, more than three million people have taken to the website to search for the plane.
The plane has been missing for 10 days now after the Malaysian Airlines jet disappeared during its flight from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.
Investigators are currently targeting crew members of the flight.
Authorities are currently trying to free up memory on pilot Zahaire Ahmad Shah's computerised home flight simulator that is said to have had a secret US airbase map deleted from it.
But acting Transport minister Hishammuddin Hussein told a news conference that the pilot is considered innocent until proven guilty of any wrongdoing.
