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.

Police spoke with a man who was involved with murdered model Jasmine Fiore and believe a text he received the night she died may hold an important clue.

The victim and husband Ryan Alexander Jenkins (the "person of interest") were in San Diego for a poker tournament Friday. At some point, Fiore texted Robert Hasman, a former boyfriend with whom she was involved before meeting Jenkins.

Ryan Alexander Jenkins knew of Hasman, and was upset Hasman had been communicating with his wife while he was in Mexico shooting a reality show.

That show was I Love Money 3. More on that in a sec.

Jasmine Fiore is believed to have texted Robert Hasman Friday night, saying she was going to travel to Las Vegas to see him. Later that same evening, we're told Hasman received another text message from Fiore's phone that simply said:

"Suck it."

Police think that Ryan Alexander Jenkins, right, may have seen the text Jasmine Fiore sent to Robert Hasman, then fired off the "suck it" text message out of anger.

Fiore's body was stuffed in a suitcase and placed in a dumpster in Orange County. Jenkins was the last person to see her and reported her missing Saturday.

He is now MIA. Cops are "suspicious" of Ryan but he is not yet a suspect.

Interestingly, Jenkins had reportedly been bragging that he won a boatload of money on a reality show after his stint on VH1's Megan Wants a Millionaire.

Ryan Alexander Jenkins appeared on I Love Money Season 3, which has not yet aired, after his stint on Megan Wants a Millionaire. He married Jasmine Fiore in March after meeting her in a Las Vegas strip club ... two days earlier.

Ryan told several people who have spoken out since he went MIA that he was the I Love Money 3 winner, pulling in $250,000. VH1 has not confirmed this.

The taping of the reality show wrapped around four weeks ago.

The murder of Jasmine Fiore, a Playboy representative who was found dead and stuffed in a suitcase in Orange County last weekend, has police on the hunt.

Their top suspect is Ryan Alexander Jenkins, a recent contestant on the VH1 reality show Megan Wants a Millionaire (and rumored to be among its finalists).

According to police, Jasmine Fiore was found in a trash bin in Buena Park Saturday morning. She was first reported missing by Ryan Jenkins that evening.

The Buena Park PD has been trying unsuccessfully to contact him ever since and feared he may be on the run. A police official said they fear the 32-year-old Ryan Alexander Jenkins, a resident of Calgary, may be fleeing to Canada.

"It's suspicious," the official said.

Police later learned Ryan Jenkins married Jasmine Fiore earlier this year.

That revelation came courtesy of none other than Megan Hauserman, star of Megan Wants a Millionaire, who said Jenkins met Fiore at a strip club in Vegas where she worked as a dancer. Megan says Jenkins married Fiore two days later.

Ryan Jenkins, who was reportedly a finalist on the show, which is airing right now, went right to Vegas after getting booted from the show and met Fiore.

Megan Hauserman says Jenkins was smart, nice and she is shocked by the turn of events. Jenkins' publicist just released a statement saying the following:

"Ryan is currently speaking to his attorney and will fully cooperate with the police in this matter. He is planning on meeting with them in the near future."
