Well, you only said you were `struggling' to find a package.

Bert may well have done the Google search himself and found numerous resources on such models including links to R (as I did, see below).  If so, his response seems quite natural.

Perhaps, you need to say what is wrong with the hits you got and the packages that they describe to keep a potential response from running in the wrong direction. Perhaps, you have misunderstood the capabilities of a package or failed to grasp an inobvious way to use the package to reach your goal.  In any case, providing some background of why you think the obvious leads do not work in your case can be helpful.

Doing that search myself I see links to R packages, R functions, and to "The Gaussian Processes Web Site" which has a table of possibly relevant softwares.  It seems like there is a lot there to digest.
