Jaden's mum Becky feared the worst when, on the afternoon of Friday, 21 February, she asked his four-year-old brother Charlie where Jaden was, only to learn that he had apparently walked out the front door.
The panicked mum called the police, resulting in a huge search over the local area – neighbours, friends and strangers even joined in.
As time went on, frantic Becky decided to double-check the kitchen cupboard, where she spotted the youngster napping under a pile of bags.
Becky, 32, and her husband, Andy, 48, had already spent an hour searching St Neots, Cambridgeshire, for their son before the police search got underway.
The mum-of-seven told the Daily Express how shocked she was to discover Jaden in the cupboard: "I didn't quite believe he had been under the sink asleep for three hours – he never sits still for that long.
"I was shocked and very tearful. When I asked where he was, Charlie, my four-year-old, held my hand and took me to the front door. I thought he had gone out. It was just so horrible."
A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: "We are delighted he was found safe and well."
