Law enforcement sources say an active search for Ryan Alexander Jenkins in the waters between Washington State and Canada is underway this morning.
In other words, they think the murder suspect is trying to flee.
Ryan Jenkins, a Canadian citizen, is a "person of interest" in the murder of his wife, model Jasmine Fiore. Fiore was found stuffed in a suitcase Saturday.
Jenkins, a contestant on Megan Wants a Millionaire and I Love Money 3 (and successful real-estate developer), "was the last person seen with the victim."
He has since gone MIA. Mike Milne of U.S. Customs says "air, marine, and border patrol agents on the ground are actively searching for leads," and they are aware that "potential suspect Ryan Alexander Jenkins could be in the area."

Since he reported his wife missing Saturday - after he allegedly became enraged by Jasmine Fiore texting an ex-lover - cops have been after Ryan Jenkins.
It turns out he has a history of violence.
Ryan was charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly hitting Jasmine Fiore in the arm back in June. The "person of interest" in the murdered model case also had a criminal record for assaulting a previous girlfriend in 2005.
The woman he assaulted is Faern Jewell, his girlfriend at the time. He was convicted of the assault in 2007 and was given 15 months probation and mandatory counseling.
He was also ordered to attend outpatient treatment for sex addiction.
A publicist for Jenkins said he intended to consult with his attorney and cooperate with police, and is "planning on meeting with them in the near future."
No one has contacted police.
