A 3-year-old boy who had gone missing in Hamilton has been found.

The boy was wearing only a nappy when family believe he escaped out a window and went to the neighbour's house, the boy's aunt said.

Family contacted the neighbour and found the boy in the house.

The boy, who turns 4 next week, went missing from the Gillies Ave, Claudelands house about 2pm and was found about 2.45pm.

His aunt said he was autistic which they believed was why he was so prone to escaping from everywhere.

"You could probably put him in a cage and he would get out."

She said the whole family was just relieved to have him back.
