Feds Hunting for Reality Star at Border

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that there's an active search for Ryan Alexander Jenkins tonight in the waters between Washington state and Canada. Translation: They think he's trying to flee.

Jenkins, a Canadian citizen, is a "person of interest" in the murder of his wife, model Jasmine Fiore. Fiore's body was found stuffed in a suitcase in Orange County, CA last weekend.

Mike Milne with U.S. Customs tells us the "air, marine, and border patrol agents on the ground are actively searching for any leads," and they are aware that a "potential suspect Ryan Jenkins could be in the area."
