Camping, 89, a co-founder and host for the Family Radio network, said at his Alameda home he was "flabbergasted" when his prediction for the rapture to arrive at 6 p.m. Saturday failed to materialize, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday.
"It has been a really tough weekend," Camping said Sunday.
The preacher had predicted the faithful would be called to heaven at 6 p.m. Saturday and those left behind would have to navigate a world of massive earthquakes until the Oct. 21 end of the world.
"I'm looking for answers," Camping said. "But now I have nothing else to say."
"I'll be back to work Monday and will say more then," he said.
