The reality TV contestant wanted for questioning in the grisly murder of a swimsuit model may have hot-footed across the border it into Canada, cops said Thursday.

Ryan Alexander Jenkins' black BMW SUV and an empty boat trailer were found late Wednesday at a marina in Blaine, Wash., about three miles from the crossing, police said.

A tipster told cops a man matching Jenkins' description arrived by boat on Point Roberts, which is 10 miles away and sits on the tip of a peninsula jutting into the U.S. that's a short shlep to Canada.

Jenkins, who is from Calgary, vanished after reporting his ex-wife, Jasmine Fiore, missing. She was later found dead in a Dumpster on Saturday near Los Angeles. Fiore's mother pleaded for cops to track down Jenkins, whose marriage to Fiore was annulled in May.

"I want to find this guy," Lisa Lepore said. The heartbroken mom blasted Jenkins as a controlling type who was "insanely jealous."

"I never had good vibe with him," Lepore said, describing Jenkins as "really cheap and just weird."

Jenkins was charged in June with domestic abuse for slugging Fiore in the arm, Nevada court records show.

Alexander, 32, was awaiting a nonjury trial in December on the charges, when he went on the lam. A contestant on the VH1 reality show "Megan Wants a Millionaire," Jenkins married the slain stunner in a quickie Las Vegas wedding in March, records show.

Jenkins previously served 15 months' probation for a 2007 assault on a woman in Canada.

"He was the last person seen in the company of our victim, in San Diego, at some sort of poker party," said Lt. Gary Worrall of the Buena Park, Calif., police.

He described Jenkins as a "person of interest."

"We're characterizing the fact that we're not able to find him as suspicious," Worrall said. Fiore, 26, was strangled and her nude body was found stuffed inside a suitcase by a bum looking for recyclables, cops said.

She was identified on Tuesday.

TMZ.com reported that Jenkins flipped out after intercepting a text message to Fiore from her former flame.

"Suck it," Jenkins reportedly replied, using Fiore's phone, TMZ.com reported.

Fiore grew up a "wild child" in Santa Cruz, Calif., where she was raised by a hippie mom who insisted on being called "Spirit," a former work associate said.

A stacked siren who once appeared in an ad for Howard Stern's radio show, Fiore recently changed her last name to Kinkade and moved to L.A. to launch a career as a personal trainer.

Until it was scrubbed, Jenkins' profile on VH1's site described him as an investment banker. He crassly claimed that "he has left many amazing women in his life primarily because he wanted more women."

On the show, he was dubbed "Smooth Operator" because of "his cheeky cockiness."

"And I mean that in a friendly way," Rob Locke, who played the host, a butler named Niles, told the Associated Press.

Jenkins was also in the cast of another VH1 reality show called "I Love Money 3," which wrapped at the end of July.

That show is in jeopardy now because of Ryan's possible involvement in Fiore's killing.
