BLAINE, Minn. — Law enforcement officers have resumed their search in Blaine for a man accused of killing his former boyfriend.

All gates to the Anoka County-Blaine Airport are closed as authorities look for Lyle "Ty" Hoffman. Officials say a possible sighting was reported early Tuesday in the area of the airport. The search involves multiple agencies and local SWAT officers.

Officials inspected each hangar at the airport Monday following a bank robbery at the TCF Bank in Blaine on Sunday. Authorities said the man who robbed the bank looked a lot like Hoffman. The 44-year-old Hoffman is wanted for the Aug. 11 shooting death of his former romantic and business partner Kelly Phillips at an Arden Hills gas station.

A car linked to the Phillips' homicide was earlier found parked near the airport.
