How can I view an SSIS pkg stored in SQL Server 2005 Maintenance Plans?

Here is what happened:
1.  SQL Server 2005 Management Studio
2.  Tasks > Export data
3.  Wizard gives you the option to Execute Immediately and/or Save as an SSIS package
4.  Selected option to Exec Imm and Save SSIS package to File System (pkg protection level = default = encrypt sensitive data with user key)
5.  SSIS pkg named, described and saved to a local path (filename.dtsx)
6.  SQL Server 2005 Business Intelligence Development Studio > File\Open the previously saved dtsx file
7.  Modified the SSIS package in the BIDS designer gui.
8.  Used the File > "Save" option to save the modified SSIS package in SQL Server under the "Maintenance Plans" list tree.
9.  Back in SQL Server Mgt Studio, created a Job with Step 1 that executes an SSIS pkg.
10.  The job step's General Properties specifies Type = SQL Server Integration Services Package, Run As: SQL Agent Service Account, Package Source = SQL Server, Server = [the SQL 2005 instance where the pkg was Saved to], Windows Authentication selected, and the Package location was selected by hitting the ellipsis button ... this let me browse the SQL Server instance for the saved package, which I found under the "Maintenance Plans" node.
11.  The original DTSX file object is now gone - someone deleted the file and its containing folder and it cannot be recovered.
12.  The modified SSIS package is being executed as Step 1 of the SQL Job, but now a new requirement means the SSIS package needs to be modified.
13.  The SSIS package apparently is "stored" in the SQL Server instance under something called "Mainteance Plans", but I need to find it so that I can open it in the BIDS designer to make the necessary design changes.  
14.  I am using the same Windows account and same SQL account (as applicable) as were used when the original DTSX file object was opened and modified in BIDS, and then saved as an SSIS package in SQL Server, under the "Maintenance Plans" tree node.  
15.  I now cannot find a way to open / retrieve that SSIS package.  Where is it?  How do I open it so I can modify and/or save it as a DTSX object again?   Screen shot of the SQL job step is attached.

you can open BIDS again, create new ssis package
right click on "ssis packages" folder
select "add existing package",
now you can add package from file system/ sql server/ ssis package storage
