GONE MISSING: The ashes of Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain have gone missing after a theft at Courtney Love's Hollywood home.

The ashes of dead rock star Kurt Cobain have reportedly been stolen.

British tabloid News of the World reported Cobain's widow Courtney Love was "suicidal" after finding the Nirvana's front man's remains missing from her Hollywood home.

Love kept the ashes in a pink teddy-bear-shaped bag along with a lock of his hair, News of the World reported. Thousands of dollars worth of clothes and jewelry were also taken in the burglary.

"They were all I had left of my husband," Love said. "I used to take them everywhere with me just so I could feel Kurt was still with me."

"I can't believe anyone would take Kurt's ashes from me. I find it disgusting and right now I'm suicidal.

"If I don't get them back I don't know what I'll do. Now it feels like I have lost him all over again."

Nirvana were one of the world's biggest bands in the 1990s and the leaders of the grunge movement until Cobain shot himself in April, 1994, while high on heroin.

The band, also comprised of Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, have sold 62 million record worldwide.
