A police spokesperson said that the boy had been playing hide and seek and had evaded capture so well that his parents thought he was missing.

The spokesperson said the boy didn’t respond to his father’s cries because he “did not want to ruin the game of hide and seek”.

They added: “Reports like this are taken very seriously, but thankfully this had a positive ending.”
