I think the simplest hypothesis would be that upon realizing they would need to travel downtime to Earth's pre-warp era, Thelin stayed back with the rest of the landing party and did not enter the Guardian.
Or maybe McCoy ended up traveling to a different world's past where Thelin could have gone safely.

Of course, heck, for all we know, maybe the Enterprise never discovered the Guardian in the first place without Spock aboard.
Yes, but that's no fun.
