As previously reported, slain swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore's husband Ryan Jenkins is a “person of interest” in her murder, and now he’s fled to Canada, where he was born.

According to a report, Jenkins drove his black SUV up to Blaine, Washington where he launched the boat he was towing into the Pacific and headed up to Canada.

A police source told press, "Deputies received a report from a citizen that she had observed a boat being driven into the marina by a male matching Mr. Jenkins's description, and the male was acting suspiciously. A short time later, deputies located that boat abandoned in the marina, and an intense manhunt ensued utilizing customs and a border protection helicopter ... and assistance from the U.S. Marshal.”

The source continued, "The search failed to locate Mr. Jenkins, and it is believed that he was able to successfully cross the border into Canada on-foot. Canadian authorities were advised and they assisted us from their side, but were also unsuccessful in locating him."
