First of all you need to mind my translations, I've never heard of such hadith as well but I do know that, Allah will not judge some who was totally ignorant about Islam and I quote from IslamWeb Allah said

وَمَا كُنَّا مُعَذِّبِينَ حَتَّى نَبْعَثَ رَسُولاً {الإسراء: 15} صدق الله العظيم

And never would We punish until We sent a messenger. (17:15)

and our prophet SAW said

والذي نفس محمد بيده؛ لا يسمع بي أحد من هذه الأمة يهودي ولا نصراني ولم يؤمن بالذي أرسلت به إلا كان من أصحاب النار

By Him in Whose hand is the life of Muhammad, he who amongst the community of Jews or Christians hears about me, but does not affirm his belief in that with which I have been sent and dies in this state (of disbelief), he shall be but one of the denizens of Hell-Fire. (Sahih Muslim)

Therefore, if we imagine that a person who lived his life and did not hear anything about Islam, it will be treated on the Day of Resurrection according to the people of his time. Thus if he didn't ever heard of Islam, hewont be account disbeliever of it.
